Susannah Misselthwaite was gazing up at the brightness of the blue sky when the deer leapt in front of the car. She never knew what happened. Guy Misselthwaite, Professor of Botany, hides from his grief in his greenhouse. Without Susannah, everything is lost. Meanwhile little Felix pores over photographs of Susannah, grasping for traces of a mother who is slipping from his memory. Felix is happiest sitting in the branches of a tree in the university's Botanical Garden. Here, he presides over the dreams and dramas of those who pass beneath him. Touching, funny and bittersweet, this is a story about love, loss and loyalty – and how sometimes a bit of earth can mend a broken heart.
