Abstract:

"A woman's journey through a year of love, loss, and despair. Debi's husband, Peter, was diagnosed with cancer in November 2015, too late in the season to seek solace in gardening. Ever since her childhood on a Niagara farm, Debi has dug in the dirt to find resilience. With idle hands and a mind filled with fear, she now sought something to sustain her through the months ahead. She soon came across victory gardens -- the vegetable gardens cultivated during the world wars to fight hunger and hold on to hope. 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 and he died suddenly of a heart attack, the garden was a reminder that everything ends. For weeks, she hated the garden until she could finally return to tending it, allowing her grief to crack open while preparing the garden for another year of growth. A Victory Garden for Trying Times is a journey through a year of love and despair, and a testament to healing in the natural cycles of the earth."--
