An epic love. A horrendous tragedy. Mental derailment. And a special-needs boy who shows the way home.
The world goes mad in 1914. And in the chaos, on the blood-soaked fields of the Ypres Salient, young humanitarian John Armitage meets a British nurse, Evelyne Grenville, a lady with admirable courage and a secret. Could they possibly make a difference, offering solace at the Western Front? Will Evelyne's secret life bring calamity on them both?
After the war, they unite and find purpose in philanthropic activities. Obstacles abound along the way, one of which inflicts horrific loss. Just when John thinks Evelyne is about to be completely swallowed by grief, they encounter Brandon Stewart, a boy with learning disabilities. Together, Brandon and Evelyne help each other triumph. It's a ninety-year journey for the Armitages. It's a Walk to Paradise Garden.
