There's history behind the hedges... When Banu Sessa runs away from her abusive employer in the heat of summer and gets lost in the forest, she fully expects to not live through the night. But instead of being left to the mercy of wild animals and strange forces in a dangerous forest, she stumbles across a manicured garden where an unseen host provides her with food and shelter. Banu makes this place her haven, stealing away whenever she can - her own secret enchanted garden. But the garden has secrets of its own, and Banu is often certain someone is watching her. When she digs below the idyllic surface, what will she find?
