Publisher's Summary

Nestled in the bucolic town of Green Valley in upstate New York, the Pennywort farm appears ordinary, yet at its center lies something remarkable: a wild maze of colorful gardens that reaches beyond the imagination. Local legend says that a visitor can gain answers to life's most difficult problems simply by walking through its lush corridors. Yet the labyrinth has never helped Olivia Pennywort, the garden's beautiful and enigmatic caretaker. She has spent her entire life on her family's land, harboring a secret that forces her to keep everyone at arm's length. But when her childhood best friend, Sam Van Winkle, returns to the valley, Olivia begins to question her safe, isolated world and wonders if she at last has the courage to let someone in. As she and Sam reconnect, Olivia faces a difficult question: is the garden maze that she has nurtured all of her life a safe haven or a prison?

    Story
    "Disappointing file under Harlequin romance"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A push me pull you, straddle the fence, story with heavy angst is not a quality read for me.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa Van Allen’s story?

    The night garden that's magical is a good enticement to the story but unforuntely the story is totally NOT about that.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Night Garden?

    Most of them
