It is 1974 and the country is still struggling to come to terms with the Vietnam War. In the small town of Conners, Georgia, Darcy has just started high school, her older sister Adel goes to weekend dances at the local Army base, and their mother tends her beautiful garden–the biggest and best in town. But Darcy’s world is soon changed forever when her mother goes to Atlanta for tests. The diagnosis is not good–breast cancer. There is so much Darcy wants to talk to her mother about: the war and what happened to the soldiers who were there; the feelings she is having for the new (and troubled) boy in school. But she can’t. So she finds solace in her mother’s garden. There she can help the flowers her mother planted bloom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garden Of Angels this book really touched me. It's about a girl who finds out that her mother has breast cancer and then she starts to experience these new feelings for this guy at her school. With her mother sick she can't talk with her so she goes to her mother's garden to think. This book I would recommend to anyone. It leaves you with hope.
