關於重生與失去,與《明天別再來敲門》及《Good Grief》一樣動人溫暖

自從丈夫因車禍意外身亡,Lilian Girvan成為單身媽媽已長達3年。曾面臨崩潰及時不時的自殺念頭,她開始習慣自己是寡婦的角色。現在的她能接送兩個女兒上下學、重返職場,也能看似正常的生活。唯一最大的問題,她仍未找到內心真正的歸屬。


Not since Good Grief has a book about a young widow been so poignant, funny, original, and utterly believable. A compelling debut novel about loss. 
Give grief a chance . . .
Lilian Girvan has been a single mother for three years—ever since her husband died in a car accident. One mental breakdown and some random suicidal thoughts later, she’s just starting to get the hang of this widow thing.

Wallowing around in compost on a Saturday morning can’t be much worse than wallowing around in pajamas and self-pity.
After recruiting her kids and insanely supportive sister to join her, Lilian shows up at the Los Angeles botanical garden feeling out of her element. But what she’ll soon discover—with the help of a patient instructor and a quirky group of gardeners—is that into every life a little sun must shine, whether you want it to or not…
