Susannah's Garden by Debbie Macomber

We first see a glimpse of Susannah in Back on Blossom Street. This is the story of Susannah, life before the flower shop, with her husband Joe, daughter Chrissie, her recently widowed mother Vivian, not to mention a whole pile of ghosts from the past.

Susannah is confronted with her mother, who is gradually becoming frail, she starts to talk of meeting her husband, well he comes to her in not a dream, but I guess as a spirit. Susannah believes that she needs to get her mother placed in an assisted care facility, where she can be looked after. Susannah, comes to terms with the death of her father, she reflects on her relationship with him and with her brother who died 30 years previously and her school boyfriend who wrote to her one summer then stopped. Susannah rebuilds the relationship with her old school friends, and feels that she needs to lay some ghosts to rest, except that all is not as it appears to be......

Another delightful read from Debbie Macomber, who has a real skill of being able to identify with genuine emotions & fears.
