Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is 1974 and the country is still struggling to come to terms with the Vietnam War. In the small town of Conners, Georgia, Darcy has just started high school, her older sister Adel goes to weekend dances at the local Army base, and their mother tends her beautiful garden–the biggest and best in town. But Darcy’s world is soon changed forever when her mother goes to Atlanta for tests. The diagnosis is not good–breast cancer. There is so much Darcy wants to talk to her mother about: the war and what happened to the soldiers who were there; the feelings she is having for the new (and troubled) boy in school. But she can’t. So she finds solace in her mother’s garden. There she can help the flowers her mother planted bloom.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

With the Vietnam War raging and her mothers recent diagnosis of breast cancer, Darcy can find no one to answer her questions or help her through these difficult times, so she turns to her mothers prized garden where its silence and beauty gives her the peace and comfort she needs. Reprint.

Synopsis:

In in Conners, Georgia, 1974, fourteen-year-old Darcy tries to deal with her mother's battle with breast cancer, as she also faces new feelings for an outcast senior at her school and learns that the war in Vietnam is more than a school project.
