Readers have fallen in love with this beautiful, heart-warming and uplifting story about one woman’s journey from invisibility to being seen once more…

‘A heart-lifting and thoughtful read, that gives a huge shout out to the power and strength of women’

Seventy-something Janet Pimm is invisible. Spending most of her days alone, she tends her beloved allotment with the care and love she doesn’t receive from people. Plants, Janet thinks, are more important than friends.

Janet’s neighbour, Bev, has reached the age when a cloak of invisibility threatens to descend. Her friendly advances are rebuffed by Janet, but when the council threatens to close the allotments, Janet must swallow her pride and enlist Bev’s help.

But they’re about to prove everyone wrong.
As the two join forces, Janet realises that she isn’t happy to be a wallflower after all. And that maybe there’s more to Bev than she thought. As the bulldozers roll in and they fight to save Janet’s treasured allotment, both women find their voice again. And no one can silence them now…

‘Wraps you in warmth and wisdom’ Julietta Henderson, author of The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman
