From Publishers' Weekly:

Beginning with winter, when both her garden and her spirit seem to be buried under snow, Norris cycles through the four seasons of a gardener's heart. Norris (Becoming Bread; Inviting Silence) writes lyrically about dormancy and transformation, soil and nourishment, roots and blossoms. Perhaps most poignantly, her discussions of spring and summer beauty are tempered by the knowledge that each flower is ephemeral and destined to die, only to resurface again in the beautiful round of life. Norris's short reflections are balanced by quiet and meditative poetry on facing pages, inviting deeper rumination about how God can be discovered in the act of gardening.

From Library Journal:

Norris's latest work is an ably written counterpart to her earlier Being Home: Discovering the Spiritual in the Everyday. While it does not on the whole have the profundity of Being Home or especially her finest book, Becoming Bread: Embracing the Spiritual in the Everyday, it is a worthy addition to her writing and a pleasure for those of her readers whose need for an everyday spirituality, like her own, extends to the garden. For most collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
