Laced with gardening tips, wit and wisdom, TIME IN A GARDEN is an inspiring story of emotional and spiritual growth...for gardeners of all ages, for mothers and daughters, and anyone struggling to bloom where they are planted. Retired and in their sixties, Eve Brenneman and Adam Groft land in an unlikely Eden, helping a crew of senior citizens beautify their dying rural community by creating a perennial garden along an interstate offramp. Eve is widowed, estranged from her daughters. Adam has spent a lifetime avoiding relationships and expectations that he run the family nursery business. When Eve starts writing a garden column in the local county weekly, these unforgettable characters embark on a heartwarming, poignant journey to discover love and meaning and cope with growth and loss in the changing season of their lives. In Eve's words: "We all do battle with stony ground and unseasonable dry spells over the years. Though we may not call ourselves gardeners, it is the human experience."
