The New York Times Book Review
Browning has an unerring gift for capturing revelatory events.
Reinvention -- of home and self -- is at the heart of this simple yet elegant book. Browning's gift is telling her story of failed love through her feelings about household objects and daily routines, showing how her heart, her home, and her garden begin to heal.

Browning describes more eloquently than anyone else how our homes shape and support and change with our lives....This is a wonderful book.

Browning's voice and style are personal, good-humored, and evocative....To paraphrase her own words, she tended the house and garden for years. In the end, she finds, the house and garden took good care of her.
