From spring to summer, autumn to winter, a lot can happen in a single year.... Tilly Parker needs a fresh start, fresh air, and a fresh attitude if she is ever to leave the past behind and move on with her life. As she seeks out peace and quiet in a new town, taking on a plot at Ivy Lane allotments seems like the perfect solution. But the friendly Ivy Lane community has other ideas and gradually draw Tilly in to their cosy, comforting world of planting seedlings, organizing bake sales, and planning seasonal parties.

So much character development, then felt like a very quick ending. Narration was just not my style...not awful, but I noticed it even after the first few hours, which is unusual. Usually I adjust quickly.
