'Absolutely wonderful. It has the emotional integrity of One Day and the complexity and character depth of Cloud Atlas ... An incredible achievement' Deborah Install, author of A Robot in the Garden Jonah roams Kew Gardens trying to reassemble the shattered pieces of his life after the death of his wife, Audrey. Chloe sits by the lake, finding solace in the origami she meticulously folds; when she meets Jonah, her defences threaten to fall. Milly, a child quick to laugh, freely explores Kew. But where does she go when the gardens are closed? Harry's job is to save Kew's plants from extinction. He longs for something - or someone - who will root him firmly to the earth. Audrey links these strangers together. As the mystery of her death unravels, the characters weather the seasons to learn that stories, like paper, can be reformed.

Reviews

Kew Gardens proves an abundant and richly suggestive backdrop for this unusual story ... Udall weaves a complex story about the mysterious ways a life can linger, like a scent, and how grief and love can sometimes feel so vast and overwhelming that no earthly landscape can contain them * Daily Mail * A rich and intricate debut, at once subtle and powerful, intent and reflective, lyrical and visceral, expertly cultivating an abundance of life from all that remains after death -- James Hannah, author of 'The A to Z of You and Me' A moving story as intricate and elegant as the origami birds that Chloe, one of the characters, folds. I loved this whimsical debut novel * Red, Summer Reads * An extraordinary, enchanting book. Writing as fine and precise as a botanical sketch, gorgeously arty themes, powerful yet fragile imagery and a brilliant story - this is a book to love and treasure -- Tracy Rees, author of 'Amy Snow' This novel is all about seeing a `scarred loveliness' in a damaged world * Psychologies * A delicate and beautiful unfolding of grief, loss, love and the way that lives intersect. Insightful and inventive -- Ann Morgan, author of 'Beside Myself' Absolutely wonderful. It has the emotional integrity of One Day and the complexity and character depth of Cloud Atlas ... An incredible achievement -- Deborah Install, author of 'A Robot in the Garden'
