In Volume 2 of Letters from the Gardeners Cottage, SL Sourwine deepens her relationship with the western Argyll landscape around her on a remote estate on the west coast of Scotland. In the world outside the pandemic is raging. At the Gardeners Cottage the solitude is not unwelcome and the year brings many interactions with remnants of the prehistoric peoples of the landscape, the species that also make it home, and a robin family that become friends. Radical noticing of the more than human world surrounding us helps her keep moving forward to figuring out her place in nature too.
Praise for Letters from The Gardeners Cottage: The First Year:
A sensation of peace distilled into pages. I loved it. --Allison, UK
If you've ever wondered what it's like to leave a high profile job, move to a remote country cottage and live with the land, this book is for you. Instead of running away from her life, Susie discovers she is running towards herself, her truth, and the wisdom of Mother Nature. This book is delightful and a must read. -- BBM, USA
Letters from the Gardeners Cottage is a joy. I was thoroughly hooked. Susie's way of writing and putting into words her experience in Argyll are so captivating. It's like she's sitting next to me, telling me stories of discover and adventure. Susie is a true inspiration with so much to share with and teach us all. -- RM, UK
