The passage of the seasons in a year provides the outward frame to this New England journal, depicting life on a hill farm in Vermont. The time is now, the narrator our contemporary. With warmth and intelligence she recounts events in her life, shares the indivdualyet universalflavor of her corner of the world. It is filled with the plenty of gardens, frost and wind, wildflowers, hay, bird migrations, decay and renewal, seedtime and harvest, the inevitable cycles of life. Throughout, the abiding presence of the earth and nature provides the impetus for the song, which becomes, in any season, a song of thanksgiving. Nothing showy or glamorous here, merely the quiet yet insistent, homely and humble conveying of farm life and folk wisdom. Carol J. Lichtenberg, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman
