This is a novel written in a poetry format, and from the first person point of view. The narrator tells the story of planting a garden with Berneetha. Berneetha is a powerful presence, with big ideas. The garden grows, from small beginnings, but it also brings together an unexpected cast of characters.
The setting seems to be urban, and the garden's location becomes disputed. The characters need to work together to solve this issue.
This book reminded me of the Buffalo Garden Walk, the biggest garden walk in the nation, and how gardens can transform a neighborhood and a city and bring people together.
