'I read it with enormous pleasure ... Heartbreaking, uplifting ... A delight' TIM PEARS 'I loved their two voices, truthful and gentle and generous' GEORGINA HARDING 'Magical ... Arresting ... Read it and be restored to yourself' IRISH CENTRAL ____________________ Thirty-four years ago, when they were in their twenties, Niall Williams and Christine Breen made the impulsive decision to leave their lives in New York City and move to Christine's ancestral home in the town of Kiltumper in rural Ireland. In the decades that followed, the pair dedicated themselves to writing, gardening and living a life that followed the rhythms of the earth. In 2019, with Christine in the final stages of recovery from cancer and the land itself threatened by the arrival of turbines just one farm over, Niall and Christine decided to document a year of living in their garden and in their small corner of a rapidly changing world. Proceeding month by month through the year, this is the story of a garden in all its many splendours, and a couple who have made their life observing its wonders.
