The Forgotten Garden
Set in Cumbria!
A novel of second chances and blossoming communities from the author of The Lighthouse Bookshop. Budding landscape architect Luisa MacGregor is stuck in a rut – she hates her boss, she lives with her sister, and she is still mourning the loss of her fiance many years ago. So when she is given the opportunity to take on a parcel of land in a deprived area, she sees the chance to build a garden that can make the area bloom.
Arriving in the rundown seaside town of Collaton on the north-west coast of Cumbria, she realises that her work is going to be cut out for her. But, along with Cas, a local PE teacher, and Harper, a teen whose life has taken a wrong turn, she is determined to get the garden up and running. So when the community comes together and the garden starts to grow, she feels her luck might have changed.
Can she grow good things on this rocky ground? And might love blossom along the way…?
