Bri has a gift: she can grow plants from tiny seeds to rich blooms with a single touch. When Bri's aunt dies and wills her a dilapidated estate in rural New York, Bri and her parents decide to leave Brooklyn behind for the summer. Hopefully there, surrounded by plants and flowers, Bri will finally learn to control her gift. But their new home comes with a specific set of instructions, an old-school apothecary, and a walled garden filled with deadly botanicals that can only be entered by those who share Bri's unique family lineage. When strangers begin to arrive asking for elixirs, Bri learns she has a surprising talent for creating them. One of the visitors is Marie, who Bri befriends, only to find that Marie is keeping secrets about the estate. There is more to Bri's inheritance than she could have imagined…including a nefarious group that comes after her in search of a dangerous immortality elixir. Up against a centuries-old curse, Bri must harness her power to protect her family and conquer the dark forces descending around her.
