Ghost Gardens - by Steven Simoncic

In a forgotten part of Detroit there is a preacher looking for redemption, a nurse looking for justice, and Lorelie... who just wants a baby. For ten years she has tried and for ten years she has failed. Until today when she announces to the world she is finally having a baby... and that changes everything. Ghost Gardens weaves fantasy and reality into a story of the humor, grit, denial and delusion it takes to survive in an urban village, pitting redemption against destruction and hope against hopelessness.
