Publisher's summary

When Susannah Nelson turned 18, her parents sent her to school abroad. She said goodbye to her boyfriend, Jake - and never saw him again. She never saw her brother again, either; Doug died in a car accident while she was away.

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.

Critic reviews

"Laural Merlington's clearly enunciated voice breathes life into Macomber's moving novel about mid-life expectations....Merlington expertly fills Susannah's voice with hopefulness as she faces her ghosts and looks forward to the future." ( AudioFile)
