Angela Dunnewald’s sense of self, of direction, is fraying. She finds herself lost and alone despite a calendar full of society events, charity meetings, shopping dates, and dinners her aloof husband expects her to attend. Her best friend is a vivacious flirt, but Angela only strays when she discovers a young drifter haunting the grounds of her house. Desire to be intimate unlocks the need for achievement; Angela becomes unrecognizable to her peers and to herself. Legters's new novel offers betrayal, passion, secrets, and truth, all from inside a world that threatens to suffocate to the vanishing point.

Verdant virgins and lush lotharios await readers in this anthology of strange yet sensual stories about men and vegetation. Fantastical fronds cannot resist caressing warm flesh. Sylvan creatures of myth protecting the forest; botanical laboratory experiments run amok; a veteran of the Mexican-American war finds himself entranced by an aesthete's poisonous garden; and an alien paying our planet a visit to sample the greenery.... These fourteen stories promise readers a most tantalizing bedding.
