    I bought this at Spellbinder Books while in Bishop, Ca where the author went to school. I was curious what a memoir in essays would be like. It was written in an entertaining way with a lot of poetry inspired/style essays mixed in with the heavier elements of her story . . . "I love him for many things: the weight of his heart; the evidence of his life on the folds of the skin near his eyes . . ." It has nature elements related to her farm and what it is like where she lives. I really liked the I bought this at Spellbinder Books while in Bishop, Ca where the author went to school.

A unique read for me and I enjoyed it.

    I knew I'd be interested in Matthewson's exploration of desire because it's a subject close to my heart and her lyric language and variety of forms serve the subject so well. What really made me swoon, however, was the way the land, it's flora and fauna, is such a full-bodied character in these essays. So beautiful and so worth a read.

    A contemplative, lyrical, sensual memoir that captures the irreconciliable tension between freedom and marriage/motherhood while drawing insight and beauty from the natural world.
