Description

“A compelling and intimate reflection on love and grief and ordinary things that comfort and sustain us.” — Alison Smith, award-winning journalist

Ever since her childhood on a Niagara farm, Debi has dug in the dirt to find resilience. But when her husband, Peter, was diagnosed with cancer in November, it was too late in the season to seek solace in her garden. With idle hands and a fearful mind, she sought something to sustain her through the months ahead. She soon came across Victory Gardens — the vegetable gardens cultivated during the world wars that sustained so many.

During an anxious winter, she researched, drew plans, and ordered seeds. In spring, with Peter in remission, her garden thrived and life got back on track. But when Peter's cancer returned like a killing frost, the garden was a reminder that everything must come to an end.

A Victory Garden for Trying Times is a personal journey of love, loss, and healing through the natural cycles of the earth.

    I started this book because in a time of Coronavirus, I am planning our family's Victory Garden. I thought it was going to be about garden advice. Little did I know, especially as a nurse living in 2020, how much I needed to read this story of life and how ones garden can be a place to spend time, and meditation and joy and sorrow. I get very little time to read but I read this book in 3 days and I would read it again and again to refresh my memory of how one person grew her own Victory Garden and manage to continue on through life, through difficult times.
