Perfect for fans of Maeve Binchy' - Candis It was the year that changed everything...When Susannah Nelson turned eighteen, she said goodbye to her boyfriend, Jake-and never saw him again. She never saw her brother, Doug, again, either. He died unexpectedly that same year. Now, at fifty, Susannah finds herself regretting the paths not taken. Long married, a mother and a teacher, she should be happy. But she feels there's something missing in her life. Not only that, she's balancing the demands of an aging mother and a temperamental twenty-year-old daughter. Her mother, Vivian, a recent widow, is having difficulty coping and living alone, so Susannah goes home to Colville, Washington. In returning to her parents' house, her girlhood friends and the garden she's always loved, she also returns to the past-and the choices she made back then. What she discovers is that things are not always as they once seemed. Some paths are dead ends. But some gardens remain beautiful...

This book is the ultimate "What If" story. Suzannah's father died recently and her relationship with him was not good, her mother's memory is failing and she has to put her in a nursing home and pack up her house and sell it, she's not happy with her life at home, she is thinking about her high school sweetheart alot and how good it would probably be, problems with her children and life in general. I've always loved Debbie Macomber books, she knows how to build her characters and conflict and draw your interest.
