The Crown of the Year: Gardening with God in Eastertide and Summer
A&C Black, 15. mai 2005 - 248 sider
There has been a long association between the discipline and joy of gardening and that of prayer and modern spiritual life. But hitherto these have not been explored in any depth.
Flowers, trees, herbs and shrubs are shown to be intrinsically linked to our spirituality. In good times and in troubled times, the garden, whatever its size, even a window-box collection of one's own favourite herbs, can evoke calm and provide an oasis for contemplation and healing.
This third book falls neatly into three sections - From Easter to Pentecost, Ordinary Time (including Trinity Sunday, Corpus Christi, the Immaculate Heart of Mary) and Solemnities and Saints' Days - from St Catherine of Sienna to St Augustine of Hippo.
Jane Mossendew's books are entirely original. Some aspects of her work can be found in other books but here she unites a profound knowledge of gardening and nature's cycle with the rhythm and variations of the ecclesiastical and spiritual year. The author has a special knowledge of particular plants and their associations with religious festivals and the saints.
It is small surprise therefore that sales of Jane Mossendew's books are increasing and that there is a television series in prospect.
