Short Synopsis
From Lisa Van Allen, the author of The Wishing Thread, comes a luminous novel about love, forgiveness, and the possibilities that arise when you open your heart.

Full Synopsis
Nestled in the bucolic town of Green Valley in upstate New York, the Pennywort farm appears ordinary, yet at its center lies something remarkable: a wild maze of colorful gardens that reaches beyond the imagination. Local legend says that a visitor can gain answers to life's most difficult problems simply by walking through its lush corridors.

Yet the labyrinth has never helped Olivia Pennywort, the garden's beautiful and enigmatic caretaker. She has spent her entire life on her family's land, harboring a secret that forces her to keep everyone at arm's length. But when her childhood best friend, Sam Van Winkle, returns to the valley, Olivia begins to question her safe, isolated world and wonders if she at last has the courage to let someone in. As she and Sam reconnect, Olivia faces a difficult question: is the garden maze that she has nurtured all of her life a safe haven or a prison?

"[Amy's] methodical voice is well suited to the main character of Olivia, a wildly successful New England gardener whose secrets cause her to keep her neighbors at arm’s length." ---Publishers Weekly
