Garden of her Heart by Zoe Richards - Discussion Notes

A story of healing and recovery that will warm your soul…and get you into the garden.

Garden of Her Heart is the story of one loner, two secrets, and three weeks at the Pinewoods Retreat.

When Holly Bush (yes, she still hasn’t forgiven her mother for that combination) is made redundant with gardening leave, after a brutal attack, she decides to visit a retreat not far from home. There she finds friendship and a garden in need of love, she ends up doing literal gardening leave, bringing the community of guests together. Journaling her way through her holiday, Holly works on both her mental and physical scars and discovers an inner strength as her secrets are revealed.
