Introducing Katelyn Cross who gardens naked. Lives in a chicken coop. Takes five gal pals on a canoe trip in the wilds of northern VT. Catches fish with her bare hands. Body paints. And frets over whether marrying Greg Mazur means losing herself within a marriage.
Katelyn Cross has a secret life, a side of herself that comes out only when no one else is around. But it isn't just that she gardens naked...it's all the things her nakedness represents: Katelyn's desire for freedom and artistic expression, her ambivalence about getting married, her need to speak her own unvarnished truth. Because she and Maze are summer residents in the sleepy New England hamlet of Trout River Falls, Katelyn has never gotten involved in the problems the town faces, but when the all-female town council persuades her to take them on a wilderness canoe trip, Katelyn's outsider status rapidly melts away. Can Katelyn help save the town? Can the town save Katelyn? The Naked Gardener has everything readers crave in contemporary women's fiction - a complex and interesting heroine at a crossroads in her life, her sassy and unpredictable friends, and plenty of adventure.
