When Jemima loses her beloved grandfather, keeping his allotment alive seems like ideal way to feel close to him. She’s never fitted in before – is this her chance to find where she really belongs? Finally Melissa has the allotment she’s been longing for to distract her while her husband works away – even if it is chest-high in weeds. But when she looks for help in the wrong place, she finds she’s the hottest topic of gossip. For Dottie, her allotment and part-time job of ‘a little light dusting’ at Lerwick Manor keeps a spring in her eighty-year-old step – and her ears open for secrets. Though generations apart, these three women are about to find a common bond in a new-found passion and that true friendship can grow anywhere.
