Publisher's Summary

A Harper has always lived at Harper House, the centuries-old mansion just outside of Memphis. And for as long as anyone alive remembers, the ghostly Harper Bride has walked the halls, singing lullabies at night.

Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee - and into her new life at Harper House and In the Garden nursery. She isn't intimidated by the house - nor its mistress, local legend Roz Harper. Despite a reputation for being difficult, Roz has been nothing but kind to Stella, offering her a comfortable new place to live and a challenging new job as manager of the flourishing nursery.

As Stella settles comfortably into her new life, she finds a nurturing friendship with Roz and with expectant mother Hayley. And she discovers a fierce attraction with ruggedly handsome landscaper Logan Kitridge.

But someone isn't happy about the budding romance...the Harper Bride. As the women dig into the history of Harper House, they discover that grief and rage have kept the Bride's spirit alive long past her death. And now, she will do anything to destroy the passion that Logan and Stella share.

    "One of my favorite series"

    This is one of my favorite series by Nora Roberts. I love the stories that take place in Ireland but this was so perfect. The characters were great, and as always Ms Roberts gives you a wonderful local description as well as information. In this case about gardening. Susie Breck brought this story to life, I can't think of anyone who could have done a better job with this story. She had the accents without being cheesy. With just enough "spooky" to add interest.

    "Gripping series plot"

    I love all of Nora Roberts' books for there sweet stories and characters, but this series is one of her best. Not only do you fall in love with the characters, but you also get drawn in further and further to the Harper Bride ghost story. As you read the books you learn about the tragic and complex world that the Harper Bride lived in. It's not every day that you read a story that has you laughing, swooning, feeling pity and feeling love all on the same pages. Truly excellent book and series that I couldn't stop listening to!
