John Bevan believed life was complete. Married to his high school sweetheart and father to a young daughter, John finally had the traditional family he lacked as an orphaned child. But that all disappears when a fatal car accident steals away his wife—and the unborn child she was carrying.

Filled with sorrow, John withdraws from life and love. He erects two small crosses at the scene of his wife’s accident and visits daily, grieving. Then one morning, he encounters a man kneeling before the crosses, touching them up with white paint.

Conversations with the mysterious stranger—known to him only as the Cross Gardener—begin to heal John’s heart. But only when they undertake a journey together does John truly come to see what he must embrace in this world—from the secrets of his own past to the sorrow of his wife’s passing—if he is to start his life anew. And only as the journey ends does John divine who his guide may really be.
