Ocean Apart by Robin Pilcher
Book DescriptionDavid Corstorphine is a man in despair. His young wife has died tragically from cancer and he is devastated. Searching for relief from his memories, he gives up working in the family business and takes it upon himself to restore the rose garden of his ancestral home. His children and his parents can only stand back and let him come to terms with the loss, which they too share. By using the driving physical toil of gardening he is able to lose himself. The family-owned whisky distillery becomes the catalyst that moves him from his secure routine back into the real world, and a business meeting in the USA shocks him into making some decisions about the rest of his life. His rehabilitation begins when he gets a job as a handyman/gardener to a single mother, Jennifer. He develops a rewarding relationship with her and her son, Benji, which restores his faith in human nature. Strengthened, he returns to Scotland and saves the family business from the villains who were trying to take it over...
