“In Up the Garden Path, a young Barbadian seamstress is coerced into posing as her half-brother to go to the Niagara region in Ontario and work on a vineyard. There, she meets an aspiring actress obsessed with Joan of Arc, the ghost of a Black Loyalist soldier who wants to die, and a boss who can’t keep the starlings away from his failing vineyard. Finding it impossible to ignore their demands, but not wanting to be found out and sent home, Rosa has to stop and figure out what she really wants instead of what everyone around her needs.” (From the PLCN Website)
