"A personal review by Donna Dawson" - A delightful read! Even though it's fiction - it could be true!! I'll bet you see some similarities yourself in what Cynthia and Riley encounter as neighbors who both are intense gardeners too. "Whether they are chasing toads, growing giant pumpkins, or building the less than perfect pond, their friendship is as fragile as the Mideast Peace Agreement". I think my favourite story was 'Criminal Gardeners' but you read the book and if you think about it, let me know what you favorite was...I can see why it was shortlisted for the 1996 Leacock Festival Humorous Short Story Competition...
