Ashley (ash88) I think it was set in Italy. There is a poisonous (or maybe magical??) garden that no one is supposed to go in unless they have been exposed to it for a while (I think). The only people who are used to it are a woman and (her uncle?) and the story begins with a man who meets them and is curious about their garden...

I think the uncle's name is Italian and starts with an "R." I think his name is also in the title... "R____'s Garden" maybe?

Sorry I don't remember much. I do remember really enjoying it and thinking it was very well written.

(Just joined this group today- great idea!) :)

Ashley (ash88) THANK YOU. Couldn't remember it for the life of me... and I guess there was no uncle, but a father... but that is it. thanks again!! :)
