Against the backdrop of a house steeped in history and a thriving new gardening business, three women unearth the memories of the past and uncover a dangerous secret-finding in each other the courage to take chances and embrace the future.

Stella has a passion for planning that keeps her from taking too many risks.
But when she opens her heart to a new love,
she discovers that she will fight to the death to protect what's hers.

Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee-and into her new life at Harper House and In the Garden nursery. She isn't intimidated by the house-nor its mistress, local legend Roz Harper. Despite a reputation for being difficult, Roz has been nothing but kind to Stella, offering her a comfortable new place to live and a challenging new job as manager of the flourishing nursery. As Stella settles comfortably into her new life, she finds a nurturing friendship with Roz and with expectant mother Hayley. And she discovers a fierce attraction with ruggedly handsome landscaper Logan Kitridge

But someone isn't happy about the budding romance...the Harper Bride. As the women dig into the history of Harper House, they discover that grief and rage have kept the Bride's spirit alive long past her death. And now, she will do anything to destroy the passion that Logan and Stella share...

As always, John Grisham's books keep you involved and intrigued. Rogue Lawyer begins in a unique way but weaves the multiple story lines together, creating an interlocking picture of the character's lives. I appreciate John Grisham's writing, and especially his ability to write a good book without feeling the necessity of including crude language or descriptive sex scenes.

In this touching story of adoption and loss, this author has carefully and compassionately shown both sides of cross-cultural adoption, from the mother who gave and the one who received, and the daughter who bridged them together.
