Community. Fans of Penelope Lively’s novels and gardeners are those readers most likely to enjoy her book titled, Life in the Garden. Her reflections about gardening become insights about community, connections to nature, and reflections about different gardens throughout her long life. I think we never have too much beauty in our lives, and the smallest garden can become a place where beauty is found. Lively reflects on her well-spent life using the gardens as our guide in telling that story.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
