This is a great uplifting and encouraging story for anyone. The story was told in such a simple way that was easy to read, but the characters were still able to come across as complex and real. I wanted to be in the garden with them. Collin's father was the only character I wish I had gotten to know more about. I think I would have felt more emotion at the end had I known Mr. Craven better. It was a happy ending that could have been made happier had we known the depth of Mr. Craven’s depression and sadness.

All in all a splendid read that leaves a smile on your face!
