I just LOVE audiobooks you can listen anywhere anytime. I am thrilled to be partnering with Kate Rock Book Tours to bring you my stop on the Audio Book Tour for The Unfinished Garden by Barbara Claypole White.
About the Book:
A love story about grief, OCD, and dirt
Tilly Silverberg is rebuilding her life with her young son, Isaac, one potted-up plant at a time. Since her husband’s death, gardening has become her livelihood and her salvation. Hiding out in the North Carolina forest, she wants only to be left alone with Isaac and her greenhouse.
New to the area, successful software developer James Nealy needs a garden. On a solitary mission to reclaim his life from irrational obsessions and relentless compulsions, he has a plan: to conquer his greatest fear. Dirt. One glimpse—or two—of Tilly’s garden, and he knows she holds the key. But when he asks her to take him on as a client, she refuses.
After a family emergency pulls Tilly and Isaac back to her native England, she’s quietly happy, because nothing has changed in her childhood village. Or has it? Her first love is unexpectedly single, her mother is scheming, and her best friend is keeping secrets. Then James appears on her doorstep.
Tenuous at first, but gradually taking root, James and Tilly forge an unlikely bond. As they work together to rescue a garden choked by neglect, they unearth each other’s secrets, each other’s fears, each other’s hopes—and maybe, a shared second chance.
Miss W’s Review:
This is a beautifully written wonderful story that flawlessly handles OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) not only in a sensitive but also very informative approach.
This does not take away from the enjoyment of the story. The characters are strong, flawed and well fleshed out. The characters deal with real life issues in a way that many readers will relate to.
This authors development of dialogue is real, engaging and at times humorous.
This story about love, loss and finding happiness earns 5 STARS from Miss W !

Love Barbara Claypole White and her books!
Your book sounds like a good read, I love the cover! I love working in my yard, I love to plant flowers , wow, it sure would be hard to be working in a flower garden when your fear is dirt, I will be adding this book to my TBR list for sure. I would rather have paper back books, but while working in the garden or in the house, I do enjoy listening to audio books for sure. 🙂
Yup, me too. And these days I garden to audiobooks. (I’m a big woodland gardener. Gardening is my therapy!)
