When Barney Bardsley's husband died of cancer, she felt anxious, alone and exhausted. But she had to stay strong for their young daughter, Molly, so she steeled herself to cope by taking one day at a time. During this dark time she took to tending her small, scruffy allotment and she slowly began to find comfort in nature. This is the diary of her year in the garden, and as the seasons unfold, she charts how her own life is slowly restored under the garden's healing influence.

This is a gloriously uplifting book, and one I could imagine helping anyone through the loss of a loved one' - Sunday Telegraph
