Hope Walker survived early breast cancer at just thirty-years-old, but a mastectomy left her with a lot of scarring--and some serious fears about dating. Hope owns Changing Seasons, Heart Lake's most popular flower shop. When it comes to love and relationships, she's able to work magic through her expert flower arranging...for everyone but herself. Then one day a handsome contractor starts coming into her shop, but Hope knows he'd rather have a whole woman than someone like her.

When Hope stakes a plot of ground at Heart Lake's community garden, she finds that a woman can grow all sorts of things there: flowers, herbs, vegetables and even friendship. As she gets to know the two women who share neighboring plots, they discover that they can learn a lot from each other--not just about gardening, but about life. And Hope realizes that in order to live life to the fullest, sometimes you have to take a chance on love.

This is my new favorite author!
Her characters are so caring and generous and really care about each other. I love this book. Though sad parts, it really shows how friendship can be found when you least expect it and at any age. That love know no bounds, even after something as harsh as cancer or as simple as getting older. I miss my grandma, appreciate my mom, am thankful for my friends, and most of all love my husband for being the hardworking loving man he is. A great summer read that has inspired me to plant and play in the garden with my girls, bake something yummy and enjoy all the good in my life. Stop and smell the roses, or lavender, or pansies.
