A new novel from the desk of Marty Thompson Arnold

“Well researched…witty…deeply touching. One of my all-time favorite books!”
Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home

Nothing has ever come easily to Charlotte Adair. Her landscaping business is going belly up. Her attempts to nurture her orphaned niece Mazie have been rebuffed. Even her handsome new fiancé Harp is taking some getting used to. But just over the horizon, on an island in a river, is a rustic hunting lodge in need of landscaping. It’s owner, Fig Bigelow, is eccentric, principled, utterly delightful—and the keeper of a terrifying secret.

Charlotte’s Crossing is as much a love song to native plants and a plea for their protection, as it is a story of one woman’s uncommon love for an uncommon man.
