ABOUT HEDGE: In this “sharply drawn portrait of anguish, loneliness, fear, and desire” (Kirkus) from the winner of the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction, garden historian Maud Bentley packs up her daughters to spend a summer at a Hudson Valley estate, leaving her husband behind in California. An idyllic return to days in the sun restoring a 19th century garden takes an unexpected turn when Maud becomes entangled with her archeologist neighbor. Just as Maud’s life seems set on a new, exciting course, her eldest daughter reveals an explosive secret that drives the family back to Marin. The lies and passions of that summer continue to haunt Maud years later, as she restores the garden of one of San Francisco’s founders. Another unexpected encounter and a growing friendship—this time with the reclusive artist funding Maud’s project—resurrects old questions and patterns, bringing the past back to the surface and forever changing Maud’s life.
