An Amazon Charts bestseller.
From bestselling author Mary Ellen Taylor comes a story about profound loss, hard truths, and an overgrown greenhouse full of old secrets.
Adrift in the wake of her father’s death, a failed marriage, and multiple miscarriages, Libby McKenzie feels truly alone. Though her new life as a wedding photographer provides a semblance of purpose, it’s also a distraction from her profound pain.
When asked to photograph a wedding at the historic Woodmont estate, Libby meets the owner, Elaine Grant. Hoping to open Woodmont to the public, Elaine has employed young widower Colton Reese to help restore the grounds and asks Libby to photograph the process. Libby is immediately drawn to the old greenhouse shrouded in honeysuckle vines.
As Libby forms relationships and explores the overgrown―yet hauntingly beautiful―Woodmont estate, she finds the emotional courage to sort through her father’s office. There she discovers a letter that changes everything she knows about her parents, herself, and the estate. Beneath the vines of the old greenhouse lie generations of secrets, and it’s up to Libby to tend to the fruits born of long-buried seeds.

I got the book 5 hours ago. Its currently quarter to 5 in the morning and having just finished the book, I still have tears tracking to my pillow.
Libby and Sadie both have hard journeys, difficult decisions and lots to grieve. The one positive they both have though, is a good friend. As the stories weave together its hard not to become enraptured by Sadie's wild forthcoming style of the 1940's or Libby's artist love in 2020. The author does a really good job of weaving all the threads together and tying up all the loose ends.
Although there is plenty of loss, grief and mourning, the story does finish on a happily ever after for the characters in 2020. A fantastic read and I would really recommend it.
Events in the plot were obvious from chapter 3. State sterilization practices in the USA, Sweden, Ireland and elsewhere is has been covered in too many novels to be considered as an original theme in yet another. Otherwise, it is a well wrought and complicated plot.
