If you love the series of books about the shops on Blossom Street, then you will also love this one. The lead character is a wife, mom of almost grown kids, and daughter to a mom who is showing her age. She starts thinking of the what ifs in her life when she has to go home to move mom to an assisted living home. There is a bit of mystery and some romance, but mostly it is about finding yourself again once the kids are not taking all your time, and finding that guy you used to love that you are still married to. I loved it.

Thsi book was a very easy read that had you guessing throughout, but not really in a mystery-book sort of way. Macomber's writing is very easy to follow, not too embellished, and perfect for when you want a light read. This book is no exception. It is intended to be before Back to Blossom which I am reading next, and ties into Blossom Street/Good Yarn.

As with The Shop on Blossom Street, the characters come to life in this story as well. I could relate to each of the women in this book, even though they had a few years on me. There is a mystery, some romance, and a snotty kid who knows everything. This book certainly kept my interest, as I read it in a day.

This book was a mixture of a mild suspense with some romance. I enjoyed it very much. No explicit sexual parts, just a good, clean easy reading story. I had a hard time putting this book down. I would recommend it for sure!

Debbie Macomber writes another great book. From dealing with older teens and aging parents, to wondering about "what might have been", it is a story many of us can relate to.

I could not put this book down! This author has become one of my absolute favorites; discovered her through her book "Shop On Blossom Street", which is another fabulous work. She often writes books in a series.

This book, Susannah's Garden, has such rich character development in all of its characters. Not just the "main" character, either. You feel like you're a part of each of their lives. And there are some unexpected surprises that will keep you wanting to see what the next chapter brings. Thoroughly enjoyable; can't wait for the sequel!

Though this is book number three in the knitting book series, you don't really know that it is part of this series until the very end. No repeat characters, not the same location, just a quick mention in the very last chapter of buying a flower shop Blossom Street. This book can be read as a stand alone and you wouldn't miss a thing in the series.

Susannah Nelson has a solid life, but something seems missing. There is no real spark or drive. She is a fifth grade teacher, she has a husband and two teenage children, but something is gone.

When she gets a call and realizes that her mother is no longer able to live on her own since her husbands passing, Susannah decides to go home, to Colville, Washington to try and convince her mother that its time to move into an assistant living facility.

Going home brings about its own trauma for Susannah, reoccurring dreams of a high school sweetheart, the death of her brother thirty years before and unresolved problems with her deceased father.

Since she is now home, she decides to find Jake, the high school sweetheart, and find out why he suddenly disappeared from her life. Susannah finds so much more then she ever bargained for. A love is lost, but a greater love, the love of family, is found.

Wondeful story of the generations. Susannah's mother is becoming less able to care for herself in her family home. Susannah's daughter is finishing her year of college, her boyfriend seems distant, and her future seems bleak. And Susannah's summer off from the classroom doesn't seem adequate to handle everyone's problems - including her own. Why is her ex-boyfriend showing up in her dreams so often? An engaging story by Macomber, as usual. These characters all come to life and their problems matter to you before the story develops much at all. Recommended.

Beautiful story about what you think is true from your youth may not be the FULL truth. And how your viewpoint and thoughts change as you grow and have children. Loved the characters! Perfect book to curl up with either out in the sunshine or by a fire. Looking forward to reading more of this series. Have loved all the other Debbie Macomber books that I have read.

As usual, Debbie Macomber had me glued to this book until I finished it. Reading one of her "series" books is like watching a mini series or a soap opera. You get glued to it and feel like you know the characters. Can't wait to read more in this series. I have also used some of knitting patterns and recipes from her books.

Her characters seem to mirror her own feelings - and she has a good heart. The story shows a small family in crisis and totally unaware there is an internal problem. Is it dealt with well? Read and find out. Like most of her other books, this one really leaves you feeling that you want to come back for another visit.

I guess I'm in the minority of the people. I liked it, but didn't love it. I felt it started very slowly. On page 170 I was still deciding whether to keep reading it or not. It was around the middle of the book that I finally started getting into it. It did have a really good and surprising ending.

While most of Debbie Macomber's books are nice little stories that keep me interested -- this one was just down-right depressing. I didn't like any of the characters. They just seemed so whiney and gutless.

There wasn't much to keep me interested, but I still kept plugging away hoping that it would get better. It never really did. I wanted to shake Susannah's daughter "Chrissy" more than once. Sheesh, how could one character be so whiney and spoiled? Moreover, why would I want to read pages and pages about that character flaw? I wanted to tell Susannah to just let Chrissy make her choices and suffer some consequences. Talk about a self-induldged child!

I generally recommend Debbie Macomber's books, but this one I would definetly WALK ON BY. Don't waste your time on this. It doesn't really add any nuance to the other stories set on Blossom Street. You will be saving a hours of your life that could be better spent in say ... even WEEDING YOUR OWN GARDEN ... rather than reading this book. (And I really don't like weeding in my garden!)

There really wasn't all that much to this book. I felt like Macomber merely skimmed the surface of what could have been a deep and moving story. Instead of exploring the loss of a loved one through psychology, she explains all the misunderstandings of childhood through an implausible series of events and personal connections. There is NO way any of this could happen in real life. If this was a fantasy novel, I could forgive her.

It's not too interesting until the last third of the book, then it's enough to really keep you going. So, it's not a total loss. The main character is fairly well-developed and it shows. Recommended for someone who wants a very, very light read.

Great easy read with a bit of mystery thrown in. I did have to suspend believe a little bit to believe the end but I still really enjoyed the story.

I sympathized with Susannah's curiosity about a past boyfriend (Jake), especially because things were left unresolved. She did make several really dumb decisions and I thought she was way too lenient as a parent. She should hold her daughter (Chrissie) accountable for her promise to help her. I loved that Susannah employed different tactics to deal with Chrissie's bad boy friend (Troy).

Chrissie was really annoying but she was supposed to be. Susannah was right on that Chrissie acted more like a teenager than someone in their 20's. Kind of disappointed that Macomber wrote about Troy being taken care of but we never see it.

Loved Caroyln. She was such a cool side character, definitely the perfect sidekick for Susan.

Very nice book.

This audio CD was great.. actually one of my favorites to date, and not just b/c it was a wonderful story. The Narrator did an excellent job w/ the voices & reflection of emotion for each character. I especially loved how she read the parts of Vivienne (Susannah's elderly mother) & George (An elderly man that befriends Vivienne when she moves into Altamura assisted living)

In this story Macomber expertly tells a tale of 1 family's (as well as a few friends of the family) experience and journey through many highly relateable issues that mostly everyone has to face in life (Marraige, Love, Loss, Healing & Relationships between friends, foes, family, Lost loves of the past, and the stages of life and growing up (at all ages/stages of life), and raising children.

In this book Susannah visits her childhood home b/c she is concerned that her mothers (vivienne)mental health is deteriorating and that she should move to assisted living. While she is visiting her mothers home and in the process of moving her she is determined to figure out and come to terms with two very painful events of lost love from her youth (loss of a boyfriend that dissapeared without explanation and the death of her brother and the effect his death had on her family) While she is in process of digging this info up her daughter Chrissy comes to stay with her.

Chrissy is at the age where she still has the innocence that a teenager should have but she is also becoming an independant experienced adult, so she is faced with some very adult decisions that of course a teenager doesnt have the prior experience to know how to make wisely. So when she runs off with an older boy (one that has been raised with a whole different set of values.... or lack there of... than Chrissy has.) So naturally Susuannah is scared that Chrissy will make some regrettable decisions with this boy so she tries to stop Chrissy from seeing him (with little luck) but as the story progresses Susannah suddenly changes her views and opinion on her daughters relationship with this boy after she discovers some shocking information from her past that was unearthed while in the process of investigating the two painful events from her teenage years. Needless to say the information she uncovers is not at all what she had wanted to find nor what she expected and she has a very hard time coming to terms with this.
So, she is now faced with yet another decision... Should she stop digging and leave the past in the past or continue searching so she can uncover the truth even if the truth may not be what she wants to hear and may just leave her more confused and heartbroken than before. In the end Macomber delivers an explosion of even more unexpected events and twists that leave you satisfied and teary eyed at the end of the book... I loved this and i think anyone would love this even if you are not into Macomber or Romance-y type novels.

This is part of the "blossom st" series and although it is part of the series (i have been reading the series out of order) i dont think it matters whether you read it in order or not b/c although the books tie together through characters and geographical locations featured in each book, the tie ins pretty much end there and i didnt feel confused by reading some of the books later in the series prior to the earlier ones nor did i feel like reading the later-in-series books first gave away any important info that would spoil the endings of any of the earlier books.

Susannah's Garden had plenty twists and turns that were unexpected. It was a great read. You may want to read this before Debbie Macomber's Back on Blossom Street. You don't have to, but it will help with some background information.

I enjoy these books. They have a gentleness to them. This book is related to the "Blossom Street" series. But you don't have to read them at all to enjoy this book.

I could not put this book down. Enough intrigue and romance to keep you turning the pages. I even peeked ahead and read a few lines here and there but it didn"t spoil it for me. I think you will really enjoy this book in the Blossom St series although this one doesn't take place on the street itself.

This is my favorite book so far out of the Blossom street series. It takes you away from Blossom street for a while to learn about some different people. You read about the challenges of taking care of an elderly parent who is losing their ability to take care of themselves but is reluctant to go to a home. This is hard to deal with especially when you have a daughter who shows up and starts running around with a wild boy in town. In going through her mother's things she learns a few secrets as well.

"Susannah Nelson, now at fifty, finds herself regretting the paths not taken when she was 18. 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 22 year old daughter." "{Susannah's} inquiry into the road not taken reveals shocking truths about he family and,most importantly, herself in Macomber's lastes touching and resonant tale." BOOKLIST I thought it was a very good story, especially since it will lead the reader to a new book called Back On Blossom Street (Macomber has written 2 other books about the knitting store on Blossom Street). I can't wait to read that newest one.

This is a hardback, large print of a widow of 50 returning to her mother's house with a lot of decisions to make. Good story.
