Description

Home is like a leaf on a tree: other people, other homes, are the other leaves. They live beneath the same sky, share the same memories, survive the same storms. But one leaf is a solitude. After twenty-five years on a New Brunswick farm, award-winning Canadian author Beth Powning came to understand the land she calls home. Now, almost twenty years after the initial publication of Home, readers may once again experience the spirit of home in nature in this new edition of her seminal book. Time has made the subtle messages beyond her door become clearer, if not less mysterious: the glorious rawness of winter storms, the effortless dominance of oak trees, the distinctive poetry of night, the universes found within a humble garden. Placing herself in the dual roles of explorer and storyteller, Powning waltzes the unspoken divide between the untamed and the domestic, revelling in the complex bonds that exist between the natural world and those who would seek to navigate its wonders. Originally released in Canada as Seeds of Another Summer, this new edition, which includes a new introduction and gorgeous reproductions of Powning's sumptuous nature photography, will inspire those who seek a simpler life and enchant those who are already there.

About the Author
Beth Powning grew up in a small New England town, where her family has lived since the 1790s. In 1972, she and her husband Peter Powning moved to Canada and bought an 1870s farm in New Brunswick, where they established a pottery business. In 1995, Beth Powning published a book of photography, Roses for Canadian Gardens (written by childhood friend Bob Osborne). She later found her voice in Home: Chronicle of a North Country Life. Over the next fifteen years, five books followed: another book of photographs, Northern Trees and Shrubs; two works of non-fiction, Shadow Child and Edge Seasons; and three bestselling novels, The Hatbox Letters, The Sea Captain’s Wife, and A Measure of Light.
