Angela ~~
You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 96 from two months ago where fewer eyes will see it. Get back in the game! Bump!
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
Good luck!

I'll second Stand In Place; I just read it a few weeks ago and all points match.

Aerulan and SamSpayedPI's suggestion of Stand In Place by Mary Calmes looks very promising.

Some reviewers say, "Keanon was thrown of the house when he came out at 14. His brother beat him and outed him to the whole school... His grandmother took him in after his parents kicked him out and raised him. Now Jo is dying and Keanon is back in town to spend time with her before she dies... Jo has asked Keanon to restore the garden to its former beauty." | "Kaenon is going to restore her garden and while he’s doing that, he (like the flowers, trees, and herbs planted) begins to set his roots back down while entertaining everyone, sponsoring high school girls who need AP English that summer (he’s an English professor) and discussing his deceased aunt (who practiced a form of witchcraft and taught him all about herbs)..."
