Readers may think Potter’s Bench Greenhouse is as much a character in the story as any person, dog or cat. Potter’s Bench Greenhouse is an assembly of three glasshouses similar to the ones pictured here. Home to the protagonist GlenAnne Flannery, her dog, Abbie, and her cat, Phoebe. Once Abbie dies, GlenAnne discovers she is sharing her greenhouse with spirits past, called the Breaths.
Situated on a village block, the property is book-ended by a large parking lot at its front door and gardens in the back. Mounds of garden soil, mini berms really, are silhouetted each evening against a blazing sunset. The perfect location for the proprietor of a greenhouse to bury dead bodies.
