Landslide, a Novel by Melissa Leet, Antrim House
Jill grows up in an expansive Garden with her best friend Susie. The Garden’s realm has many rooms, each a showcase of her mother’s designs. Into the Garden, tragedy strikes, a landslide crashing in. When loss hits hard, how to find the resilience to go on, especially when you are only a young girl?
Cross-cutting between Jill’s childhood and adult life, Landslide explores the nature of resurgence. During all that occurs as Jill comes of age and moves through life, the Garden is a constant, reverberating through Jill’s psyche and in her heart. Teeming with poignant grief, humor, and love, Landslide is a resplendent exploration of the truth that death can sometimes open paths as wondrous as those created by life.
