The Twelve Gifts from the Garden

0 0 5 Höfundur: Charlene Costanzo
The author of Opening the Gifts shares essays inspired by nature and the life lessons she learned while pausing to reflect during rough points in her life.

During a tropical storm. In the aftermath of chemotherapy. Amid marital discord. These are among the times author Charlene Costanzo found comfort, joy, hope, and healing in Sanibel Island’s botanical garden. She also learned a few things. Eventually she amassed a collection of wisdom from these experiences and now, she shares these insights with you.

If you look closely, plants sprout with willpower and bloom with determination. Drawing from the beautiful nature of trees and flowers, Charlene crafts garden-inspired messages from her experiences with healing and understanding. Inside, find quotes, reflections, and even bonus material: • Pen-and-ink line drawings with illustrations of flowers, leaves, and garden plants
• Charlene’s
Twelve Gifts • resource and lessons learned in the garden
• An epilogue from two other locales: Sedona, Arizona, and St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Each gift-from-the-garden message asks readers to imagine walking in the author’s sandals—or at least by her side—and try to perceive as she did. The journey is sometimes whimsical, often idealistic, and always encouraging. Charlene hopes that this book will ultimately enrich and empower readers as they journey through life in their own shoes.

Perfect for readers of Anne Morrow Lindbergh
