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 Darcys 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 cant. So she finds solace in her mothers garden. There she can help the flowers her mother planted bloom.

From the Hardcover edition.

This is my favorite book. It's really sweet, innocent, and touching, yet heartwrenching at the same time. Happy, yet very sad, this book pulled my heartstrings like no other.

This one of the best books I have read. I've read most of Lurlene McDaniel's books, and I read this one second. It seems like every new book I read by Lurlene McDaniel that it gets better, Garden of Angels is really one of the better books written by her that doesn't get replaced with other favorites.
