Quiet, contemplative, insightful, this book is hard to classify: perhaps a memoir, but most of all a celebration of a sense of place, a place where one belongs in a personal and organic way. Truly beautiful prose without ever becoming the least bit academic or artsy. Powning's deep love for her rural home and everything that surrounds it shines through with authenticity in every paragraph. This is a book to be savored in a quiet corner, perhaps by the fire on a cold winter's day.
