Gift from the Garden
Much like Anne Morrow Lindberg’s Gift from the Sea, Bernie DuBois applies a gentle approach to the changes and phases that happen in a woman’s life, and she compares these stages to plants in Gift from the Garden.
In this graceful, poignant book, DuBois shares her musings on belonging and community; healing and nurturing; and building a vision that works for each woman’s life.
Drawing inspiration from her garden, her anecdotes are filled with humor and compassion for women’s dilemmas. Having been a college teacher and administrator, Bernie Dubois brings a wise and insightful approach to the way women are constantly changing and growing in today’s frenzied society. Her writing is both restorative and inspirational, no matter the reader’s life stage.
