To deal with the death of his wife Rose must be hard enough, but when he discovers some items in her blue handbag Leonard, a gentle soul, has to contend with the possibility that he doesn’t know his wife as well as he thought he did and that she may have been keeping secrets from him.

Gardener, Leonard, decides that instead of mulling things over and working himself up into a state he must take action, but peace of mind may not always lead to happiness. With the help of Lily, his wife’s old school friend, he tentatively delves into uncovering secrets which have lain dormant for years. Will he be strong enough to cope with the consequences?




Fiona Robyn writes with remarkable perception about one man’s tenacious search for answers and the knowledge that the truth may not be what he wants to hear. She strikes the perfect balance between a captivating, yet realistic plot, and the accurate portrayal of her characters’ intricate lives and the relationships they build. As this story unfolds Robyn has captured the essence of what it means to have one’s life thrown into disarray, and how it is possible to overcome life’s obstacles with caring friendships and a loving family, even though they each also have their own issues to deal with. Pickles the dog is also a sweetheart and plays an important role in Leonard’s life as his coping mechanism and faithful friend. This book made me smile, laugh out loud and shed a tear. Now, that’s what I call entertainment!
