Unearthed: Love, Acceptance and Other Lessons from an Abandoned Garden - Alexandra Risen

Posted by Marilyn Thiessen

Unearthed is a beautiful memoir that touched me in a deeply emotional way.  Risen has a powerful way of reaching the readers with her apt description of natures ability to transform and restore.

On each step of her journey in bringing her garden to life, we learn about the earth, plants, trees and how it affects her family's growth and her acceptance of her relationships with her parents and sibling.

Poignant and heartfelt, this memoir is to be absorbed slowly like the rain on freshly worked soil.
