Uncle Henry is the uncle we would all wish to have, and one cannot help envying Artemisia Callow as he fixes her post-divorce woes by finding her a job with the son of an old friend. Uncle Henry’s matchmaking is twofold as he is not only looking to find his niece suitable employment, but also reunite his sister, Judith, with her long lost love. Unfortunately, Art’s romantic dreams of her new occupation, as a lady gardener, do not meet up with the reality of working for the moody Joel Marston. Joel is pressured into giving her the post by his domineering industrialist father, who sees it as a route back to Art’s mother, Judith, the “one that got away”. Joel’s experiences with the opposite sex have left him bitter and resentful and so he sets out to make the job impossible, in the hope Art will be forced to resign. Joel does not account for Art’s dogged determination and the harder he makes things for her, the more she rises to the challenge. As romance sparks once more between their parents, Joel and Art begin to discover a mutual respect for one another, encouraged by Art’s young children, Charlie and Cecily. Haunted by his past, Joel struggles with his feelings for the dynamic Art, will his ghosts release him to love again?
