#1 New Release in Philosophy, Consciousness & Thought, and Tropical Climate Gardening - A Garden View of Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift from the Sea

During a tropical storm. In the aftermath of chemotherapy. In the midst of marital discord. These are among the times author Charlene Costanzo found comfort, joy, hope, and healing on Sanibel Island. Now, comes a collection of insightful life-guiding reflections inspired by the tropical botanicals of one of Florida's most precious flower gardens.

Life lessons and line art in the tropics. In the tradition of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Charlene finds awe in the bounty of sea shells along the Florida shoreline. But, it's the foliage in Sanibel's botanical garden that brings daily reflections and lesson-bearing messages.

Translating the beauty of botany. 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 bonus material like:

  • Pen-and-ink line drawings with illustrations of flowers, leaves, and garden plants
  • Charlene's Twelve Gifts resource and how they apply to the lessons learned in the garden
  • An epilogue from two other locales-Sedona, Arizona and St. John, Virgin Islands

Perfect garden gift or beach gift. Whether you're exploring the secret life of trees or the beauty of a cut flower garden, this environmentalist memoir is a great addition to any shelf of nature books. A combination of garden books and meditation books, Twelve Gifts from the Garden is both an ode to ecology and a collection of healing, discoveries, and epiphanies. Some pieces provide comfort, some support strength and courage-but all offer a relaxing gift for women.

If you're looking for Anne Lamott books, gardener gifts, or inspirational gifts for women-or enjoyed bestsellers like Braiding Sweetgrass or The Hidden Life of Trees-then Twelve Gifts from the Garden is your next read!
