Now, at 50, she finds herself regretting the paths not taken. Especially the chance to be with Jake...Long married, a mother and a teacher, she should be happy. But she feels there's something missing, although she doesn't know exactly what. Not only that, she's balancing the demands of an aging mother and a temperamental 20-year-old daughter.
Because her mother, Vivian, a recent widow, is having difficulty coping and living alone, Susannah prepares to make some hard decisions. In returning to her hometown of Colville, Washington, to her parents' house, her girlhood friends and the garden she's always loved, she also returns to the past - and the choices she made back then.
What she discovers is that things are not always as they once seemed. Some paths are dead ends. But some gardens remain beautiful.

I use to read Debbie Macomber years & years ago, but just recently found her on Audible.com & decided to try to catch up. So glad! I'm addicted!!! I'm on my 4th book!!!!!! =)
Good portrayal of dealing with an aging parent and questions of midlife boredom. Not terribly exciting, but a good read.
