內容簡介

關於重生與失去,與《明天別再來敲門》及《Good Grief》一樣動人溫暖
面臨悲傷,也別忘了這可能是一個新生的開始…

自從丈夫因車禍意外身亡,Lilian Girvan成為單身媽媽已長達3年。曾面臨崩潰及時不時的自殺念頭,她開始習慣自己是寡婦的角色。現在的她能接送兩個女兒上下學、重返職場,也能看似正常的生活。唯一最大的問題,她仍未找到內心真正的歸屬。

還好教科書插畫的工作待遇不錯,還有老闆強迫她參加的園藝課程。Lilian將自己深深投入在園藝的世界中,總比假日穿著睡衣在家中自怨自艾的好。在女兒與姐姐的幫助下,Lilian越來越熱愛園藝生活,甚至成為專業講師,且擁有一群擁護者。儘管人生遭遇挫折,陽光永遠為你閃耀,只要學習走出悲傷,給自己一個全新的機會。

Not since Good Grief has a book about a young widow been so poignant, funny, original, and utterly believable. A compelling debut novel about loss. 
 
Give grief a chance . . .
 
Lilian Girvan has been a single mother for three years—ever since her husband died in a car accident. One mental breakdown and some random suicidal thoughts later, she’s just starting to get the hang of this widow thing. She can now get her two girls to school, show up to work, and watch TV like a pro. The only problem is she’s becoming overwhelmed with being underwhelmed.
 
At least her textbook illustrating job has some perks—like actually being called upon to draw whale genitalia. Oh, and there’s that vegetable-gardening class her boss signed her up for. Apparently, being the chosen illustrator for a series of boutique vegetable guides means getting your hands dirty, literally. Wallowing around in compost on a Saturday morning can’t be much worse than wallowing around in pajamas and self-pity.
 
After recruiting her kids and insanely supportive sister to join her, Lilian shows up at the Los Angeles botanical garden feeling out of her element. But what she’ll soon discover—with the help of a patient instructor and a quirky group of gardeners—is that into every life a little sun must shine, whether you want it to or not…
