The Garden Angel (St. Martin's Press/Picador): An obituary writer schemes to hold onto her dilapidated, ancestral home and in the process befriends an Emily Dickinson-obsessed agoraphobic stuck in the suburbs. Think "Grey Gardens" meets "Fried Green Tomatoes."
Strong storytelling, comic touches, prickly family dynamics and the magical power of nature. A once-grand heirloom garden is covertly rescued, revealing a divided family’s secret lives of turmoil and yearning. From St. Martin's Press in May.
