Synopsis: From New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas comes a reader-favorite story of a life, a legacy and a love that has the power to change a community. Originally published in 2005.

Everyone assumes that Rosa Lee Altman lived a life without passion. Her once-beautiful home now sits silent and empty, its gardens overgrown and its windows boarded up, surrounded by what passes for progress in Clifton Creek, Texas. And if some of the townsfolk have their way, this idyllic reminder of times past will be sold off to the highest bidder, despite its rich history. When a group of community members with little in common is chosen to decide the fate of the old Altman place, they soon learn that this home is more than bricks and mortar. No one is prepared for what they discover beneath Rosa Lee’s overgrown roses—or how her legacy will change not only their town, but their very lives.
