Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A pleasure for . . . readers whose need for an everyday spirituality . . . extends to the garden."  —Library Journal

"Norris cycles through the four seasons of a gardener's heart. Norris . . . writes lyrically about dormancy and transformation, soil and nourishment, roots and blossoms . . . Norris's short reflections are balanced by quiet and meditative poetry on facing pages, inviting deeper rumination about how God can be discovered in the act of gardening."  —Publishers Weekly

Library Journal
Norris's latest work is an ably written counterpart to her earlier Being Home: Discovering the Spiritual in the Everyday. While it does not on the whole have the profundity of Being Home or especially her finest book, Becoming Bread: Embracing the Spiritual in the Everyday, it is a worthy addition to her writing and a pleasure for those of her readers whose need for an everyday spirituality, like her own, extends to the garden. For most collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
