by June Cotner —
This book is an eloquent tribute to the wonders of the garden, a place where our souls are nourished and memories have grown.
Our gardens grow us, and this moving collection of readings takes us through every season and down a path of pure pleasure.
While the book features classic and famous writers, it also includes new and award-winning authors, resulting in the discovery of many selections not found anywhere else.
The book is a one-of-a-kind treasury of uplifting prayers, prose and poems that share a common appreciation for the love of gardening and the many blessings that gardens bring to our lives.
Cotner has gathered a bounty of gifts from the garden, offering gems of wisdom that remind the reader and gardener in all of us just how much we can learn from nature.
