Publisher Comments:

A true story of a unique friendship between two people who had nothing—and ultimately everything—in common.

Carol Wall, living in a lily-white neighborhood in Middle America, is at a crossroads in her life. Her children are grown; she has successfully overcome illness; her beloved parents are getting older. One day she notices a dark-skinned African man tending her neighbors yard. His name is Giles Owita. He bags groceries at the supermarket. He comes from Kenya. And hes very good at gardening.

Before long Giles is transforming not only Carols yard, but her life. Though they are seemingly quite different, a caring bond grows between them. But Carol and Giles both hold long-buried secrets that, when revealed, will cement their friendship forever.
