Book Blurb Friday (5): Soft Rains of April

Today is week five of Lisa Ricard Claro's awesome meme, Book Blurb Friday. The object of this inspiring meme is to take the cover image Lisa provides and write the back cover blurb you feel belongs to the book, in 150 words or less. Pop over to Lisa's blog to find out more and to visit the other entries.

Here is this week's image and my back cover blurb:


To her family, friends, and neighbours, April Flowers was a woman who spent her days tending her garden and volunteering for numerous charities. It was only when she died in a tragic accident on the other side of the world that her daughter discovered the truth – April Flowers had been leading a double life.

Read May Flowers astonishing journey to meet her mother’s other family and her quest to seek the answer to the most important question of all – why had she led a double life?
