By the author of one of my all time favorite novels, This Is Happiness, and artist-author Christine Breen, his wife.
In this memoir-garden philosophy, the two authors explore every aspect of living in the garden, living within the natural rhythms of flowers, plants and trees who “like or don’t like where they are unhappy or happy." This is a naturalist’s spiritual book of loving the garden and life within it, cherishing and protecting it and the spirit within yourself as outside pressures intrude. I didn’t want this book to end. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
