A Light in the Garden by Heather Burch. Published by Lake Union

Charity Baxter’s best memories of childhood are of the times she spent with her grandparents on the Florida Gulf coast. Her mother was neglectful, self-centered and uncaring so when she loses her grandparents, Charity is heart-broken. The only family she loved, the only family that loved her, is gone. Charity has been left her grandparent’s island home and while it’s the scene of many happy memories, she no longer believes that the old weeping willow tree on the property is magical. The truth is, she doesn’t really believe in anything anymore. But then something unusual happens –  other people who have lost their way begin showing up –  a runaway teen, an uncle with a painful past and a man whose heart has been broken. Last but not least, Charity’s mother shows up needing help. Will Charity be able to get over the past to move forward? Oh my, what a lovely story. In such troubled times, it was absolutely wonderful to read such a gentle, magical book
