Anne Raver is a writer and gardener but it's hard to tell which came first. Her enthuasism for growing things (outside for she doesn't deal with indoor plants well) shows in every word she writes in every essay. In the beginning I wanted Deep in the Green to be one of those nonfiction journals about a gardener making a life for herself after divorce. Diving into the growing after a relationship dies. Instead, Deep in the Green is best described as a series of essays that barely connect to one another but have a central theme...gardening & growing. As a columnist for the New York Times I guess it's easy to string a bunch of essays together and call it a book.

I found Anne Raver's book to lack that essential connection to the natural world that most gardening/nature essay collections have. I did not walk away refreshed and re-connected to the physical workd; rather, she left me feeling rather depleted and depressed.
