From the Publisher
"In this profoundly moving memoir, Owita teaches Wall how
to find grace amid heartbreak and to accept that beauty exists
because it is fleeting-as in her
garden, as in life." -People, 4
"A perfect spring awakening."
A true story of a unique friendship between two people who had
nothing-and ultimately everything-in common.
Carol Wall, a white woman living in a lily-white neighborhood in
Middle America, was at a crossroads in her life. Her children were
grown; she had successfully overcome illness; her beloved parents
were getting older. One day she notices a dark-skinned African man
tending her neighbor's yard. His name is Giles Owita. He bags
groceries at the supermarket. He comes from Kenya. And he's very
good at gardening.
Before long Giles is transforming not only Carol's yard, but her
life. Though they are seemingly quite different, a caring bond
grows between them. But they both hold long-buried secrets that,
when revealed, will cement their friendship forever.
