A moving true story of the unlikely friendship between two people who had nothing and ultimately everything in common. Carol Wall was at a crossroads. Her children had flown the nest, her beloved parents were ageing and she had overcome a serious illness. A neglected garden should have been the least of her worries. Until one day she sees a man working in her neighbour s garden and realises he is responsible for its spectacular transformation. His name is Giles Owita. He comes from Kenya and he s very good at gardening. It was kismet. And while I knew from the moment I met him that he was something special - truly, I didn t know the half of it. Before long Mister Owita is transforming not only Carol s garden, but her life. Although they seem to have nothing in common, a bond grows between them. When both are forced to share long-buried secrets, their friendship is transformed forever. This is the story of a woman who at mid-life finds there is so much more to learn and a man whose grace in facing life s challenges is a lesson for us all 291 pages.
