Set in the modern San Francisco Bay area, Leota's children have become hollow successes carrying the burden of their wounded spirits & tainting their own children in the same way.
Back when Leota was lively & young there was a war on, the men were away fighting & someone had to bring home the bacon. This Leota did very well & continued when her husband came home too broken be of help. It was in the garden that Leota found her refuge, her chapel where she spoke to her God & it was in there that beauty abounded. Then everyone left except Leota.
Into this lonely old woman's life of meditation & hurt comes a callow Berkeley student with his thesis writing itself in his brain & his heart on hold. Leota's granddaughter also turns up with a suitcase full of pain & questions.
A redemptive & contemplative read, well written & rewarding.
Also if you haven't already done so read 'A Voice in the Wind' - it's better still
