    • The Wishing Garden - After a tragic car accident claims the life of her husband and one of her adopted twin daughters, Mary Jane Cranford-Bewkes reluctantly moves in with her ailing father. A bigoted and ill-tempered man, he had removed Mary from his will years before when she adopted two Latina girls, and he is cruel to the granddaughter now living in his home. Nonetheless he grants Mary permission to restore her deceased mother's long-neglected garden to its previous state of beauty. Mary hires a gardener named Whit Eden, a man with Hispanic heritage and a troubled past who is now a faithful practicing Mormon. Although Whit is much younger than Mary, she finds herself increasingly drawn to him as they work side by side in the overgrown garden, and a surprising yet beautiful future together seems within reach. But when her father is assaulted with a weapon bearing Whit's fingerprints, prejudice rears its ugly head and threatens to tear the couple apart.

      • The Garden Path - Whit Eden has come full circle: growing up in a world of gangs and violence, he found redemption in the gospel - and in the love of a good woman. But in a devastating turn of events, Whit's world was rocked when he was falsely accused of murdering his father-in-law. Though he was innocent, it seemed as if all hope was lost . . . For Whit and Mary Eden, the path toward happily ever after has been strewn with opposition. But now, with a verdict of "not guilty," it seems as if they'll finally have a reprieve from the troubles that have beset them. Their joy is made complete with the stunning news that Mary is expecting their first child together, a sibling for their adopted daughter. Yet, even as the young family finds its footing, things begin to crumble for those around them. As they reach out to the struggling families, Whit and Mary must rely on one another more than ever as they embark on a journey of selfless love and second chances.
