May Attaway, 40 year old, a university gardener, who over the years has grown more comfortable with plants than people, does just that. She goes on a hero's journey and visits one by one old friends she has not seen in years. She seeks to finds herself, and along the way undergoes a life-altering transformation.
One of my favorite parts of the book is the inclusion of descriptions and illustrations of trees. I recommend this sweet little book.
I'm an expert amateur or maybe an amateur expert.
