Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The brilliant new novel from top five Sunday Times best-selling author Trisha Ashley.

All Marnie wants is somewhere to call home. Mourning lost years spent in a marriage that has finally come to an end, she needs a fresh start and time to heal. Things she hopes to find in the rural west Lancashire village her mother always told her about. 

With nothing but her two green thumbs, Marnie takes a job as a gardener, which comes with a little cottage to make her own. The garden is beautiful - filled with roses, lavender and honeysuckle - and only a little rough around the edges. Which is more than can be said for her next-door neighbour, Ned Mars. 

Marnie remembers Ned from her school days, but he’s far from the untroubled man she once knew. A recent relationship has left him with a heart as bruised as her own. 

Can a summer spent gardening help them heal and recapture the forgotten dreams they’ve let get away?

Extremely Boring Unless An Avid Gardener

There is very little story and enormous detail about minutiae of gardening, that I endured in the hope that something would happen in this soporific book. A ludicrous ending made me feel even more sad that I wasted my time listening to this awful drivel The narrator is excellent. Ashley has written other novels which at least have some story content - but not this one Watching grass grow is more entertaining- to use a gardening comparison!

Similar to others

The woman who has lost her mother again scenario. But s nice story until the last chapter when it becomes a farce. Mike turning up is where it should have ended. The long list son ex girlfriend and g thy hen the two ex’s. Go o ok no off together is OTT

Gardening Delight

As usual a really great story with many twists and turns, but a ,ove story that all works out in the end. For those who haven't read Tricia Ashley before I would thoroughly recommend her books. They arevery down to earth but the stories are so well written. Loved how characters from her last book made an appearance in this one, ,overly touch. Can't wait for the next one now.
