Item Description...
Grieving is an Odd Occupation . . .

Garden designer Mibby Garrett can't seem to get her life back on track after losing her husband in a bicycle accident six months ago. Mibby devotes her time to one goal: avoiding "whammies o' grief," those painful reminders of her husband and their former life, especially her son?s baseball games and trips to the grocery store. But when all Ky can find to snack on is blue Kool-Aid and saltines, and the only friend Mibby has left is her black Lab named Blink, she decides something has got to change.

A new garden-design job, an old remodeling project, the puzzling case of dying rosebushes, and the arrival of a mysterious young stranger get Mibby back on course.

Then comes the biggest whammy of all. . . .

Like a Watered Garden - Patti Hill  Aug 18, 2006
It's hard to believe Like a Watered Garden is a first novel for Patti Hill. The author's writing is smooth and easy to read; her character's come alive. This first-time novel delves into the heartbreak of Mibby Garrett when her husband is killed in a bicycle accident. Lost without him, Mibby goes through the motions of living. But everywhere she turns she sees him--her young son, Kyle, looks just like him. At night, in bed, she cries into her pillow. When flowers arrive from her dead husband, Mibby plunges into a pit of despair. Only then does she accept the truth, she has to take charge of what is left of her life. Find out who and what gets Mibby back on course again.

I couldn't put this book down.

A New Favorite  May 7, 2006
I recently discovered Patti Hill's books, and have added her to my shelf of honor as a favorite author. Warm, whimsical, and rich with creative word pictures, Hill uses language the way a master gardener uses plants. I fell in love with Mibby and rooted for her through the struggles and decisions she faced. Mibby won my heart again and again.
Like a Refreshing Drink of Water...  Dec 5, 2005
I picked up this book after seeing it on the "recommended" shelf at the library. In truth, I wasn't expecting much from a first-time novelist. Author Patti Hill succeeded in blowing my expectations out of the water!

This was a lovely read. Within three or four chapters, I was hooked. The characters are well-developed, unpredictable, and fully human. I fell in love with Mibby, her son, Ky, and neighbor, Louise. Having been a widow myself, Mibby's story rang with the truth of grief, and the challenges of moving on.

Ms. Hill has a true gift for elegant composition, and vivid description. Gardeners, or would-be-green-thumbs, will love the way that nature is woven throughout the story line.

I smiled a lot while reading this book and the one that follows it. I also found myself stirred with righteous anger, bittersweet tears, and a few out and out belly laughs. When I finished "Like a Watered Garden," I immediately went to the book store and purchased a copy of my own. Like a precious friend, this is a book I will visit again.
Treat Yourself!  Oct 28, 2005
A heartwarming and chuckle-producing portrayal of life and folks in Colorado's "Orchard City". Patti's novel carefully unwinds unveiling delightful multi-faceted characters who exude the struggles and triumphs like those of us trying to make the best of our 3rd and 4th choices in life. A book of surprises,trials and hopes that will keep you reading and waiting for what's next!.

Heartwarming Journey  Oct 22, 2005
You will think that Patti Hill has tasted salty tears as a widow! From the very first moment, she nailed it! Mibby is a delightful character that moves forward on faith and stubborn strength. She reminds us to embrace the quiet moments, and be prepared for the Whammies! Incorporating a group of one-of-a-kind characters, the author weaves a delightful plot. A wonderful read.
