She knows where there's a house witha big yard.The Bishops live in the largest house in town. It also has the largest yard. But the Bishops' son was the first soldierfrom the town to die in the war. Now Mrs. Bishop has hidden herself away in their house.When Lily asks Mr. Bishop for the use of a small plot within his yard, his grudging approval comes with thestern warning, "No bothering Mrs. Bishop." As Lily nurtures her garden, she discovers that the human heart is its own garden, with the same needs forattention and love. A former librarian, Helen L.
