Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Acclaimed Christian fiction writer Francine Rivers’s (The Atonement Child) Leota’s Garden uses the image of the garden as a metaphor for the cycles of life that the characters experience. While the story revolves around a number of lives, they are all connected through Leota–an 84-year-old grandmother–and her garden, which was once a place of beauty and hope but has in recent years gone to ruin. Beginning in desolation–Leota has been neglected by her self-centered daughter, whose obsession with getting her own daughter into the best college has driven them apart–the novel slowly shows the weaving together of lives in the mysterious ways of grace: a proud and narrow-minded college student ends up learning more from Leota than he’d bargained for, and the granddaughter Leota had never been allowed to know shows up looking for some answers, and even more, looking for Leota herself. A garden blooms, the novel suggests, by getting one’s hands a little dirty doing the hard work of love.
