Synopsis

'Moving, unexpected and compassionate' Louise O'Neill

'A page-turner from start to finish' Irish Mail on Sunday

'A heartfelt reminder of the importance of connection - to nature, to others, to ourselves' Calum McSwiggan

Sisters Jenna and Rosie bring out the worst in each other. So they mostly keep their distance.

But Jenna has suddenly found herself with no job, no boyfriend, nowhere to live - and no idea what to do next. Is life really supposed to be this difficult? Turning up on Rosie's doorstep is the last thing she wants to do, but it feels like her only option.

Rosie misses her old life, the one filled with fun and travel and excitement. These days she barely has the energy for her cute friend with benefits, let alone to take care of her little sister. Why doesn't she ever get to put herself first?

Somehow the sisters find themselves roped into a community project, forced to work together. As the group brings an overgrown garden back to life, curious - maybe even magical - things begin to happen. New friendships blossom and old wounds start to heal. But will Jenna and Rosie finally find their way back to happiness, and each other?

'A wonderfully empathetic exploration of human frailties and our capacity to heal ... brutally truthful and beautifully uplifting' Sophie White

'Evocative, emotional and visceral' Briana Morgan
