Staff Reviews

What a pleasure, after many years, to read this book again. Leaving summer behind, and settling into the next season can be a time of reflection no matter how busy we are. We take comfort in familiar routines and the newfound quiet of our homes, but also look forward to the changes this time of year brings. These are the themes of this book: anticipation of the new, looking back on the familiar, and how their combination brings clarity to our lives.

May Sarton describes living at her eighteenth-century house in Nelson, New Hampshire—how she acquired it, how it and the garden became part of her.
