The story is written in the present tense and I found myself very engaged in each moment. Leonard is a gardener and I loved seeing plants and wildlife through his eyes. Descriptions of landscape and plants pervade the book and really add to it, giving the developing plot some space to breathe and the various changing relationships a chance to `bed in'. Gardening is a strong metaphor throughout the book, with lots of healthy weeding and nurturing going on within relationships, and a few aptly-named key characters.
The book explores human frailty and pain in a sensitive, naturalistic way, allowing plenty of time for reflection. There's plenty of growth and redemption there too.
It's a satisfying, engrossing story and it's been a pleasure to read. I can really recommend it.
While the mystery is what pulls the reader into the story and keeps the pages turning, these explorations of relationships and the small kindnesses that are so necessary to keep relationships alive are the real treasure of this novel. Gardeners will also find the descriptions of gardens and plants to be a treat!
