Summary
"In the early 1900s, housewife Hulda Klager reads a book that changes her life forever, leading her to develop over 200 new varieties of lilacs that she gives away or sells to individuals as a way of sharing beauty. Her commitment to creation--struggling against flooding rivers and the vagaries of hybrid plants--while living through family losses and challenges is a story of perseverance and generosity that culminates when, in a time of great need, the people who Hulda gifted with beauty return to her life to help her start over"--
Summary
German immigrant and housewife Hulda Klager becomes interested in plant hybridization in the early 1900s, and gradually develops over two hundred new varieties of lilacs while dealing with a series of family tragedies
