Yet both are single mothers devoted to their children, and both find joy and comfort in cultivating plants and flowers -- and so together, they begin to develop a close bond. Through many afternoons spent amid the beauty of Inges garden, Mira slowly reveals the horrors of a shadowed past and the heartbreak involving her beloved daughter.As Mira and her family begin a wrenching journey of discovery, Inge unwittingly uncovers secrets in her own life that make her question the very order of her world . . . and wonder whether the truth is really what any of them needs to find -- or if, in fact, it is the truth that will destroy them.
