One Hundred Daffodils
One Hundred Daffodils: Finding Beauty, Grace, and Meaning When Things Fall Apart | Rebecca Winn
5 posts | 1 read | 1 reading | 1 to read
"When women share the truth about life and loss . . . hope is restored" in this enlightening and comforting memoir about purpose, personal growth, and nature's ability to heal (Sarah Ban Breathnach). "There is so much life in the garden. That is why I come. Life that is gentle, self-supporting, and beautiful. Continuous in its cycles, grounded, pure." When her husband asked for a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage, Rebecca Winn felt untethered physically, spiritually, and emotionally. The security she'd had in her marriage was suddenly replaced by an overwhelming sense of fear, hopelessness, and dread. She felt invisible and alone and was horrified to consider that her deepest longing -- to know and be known by another person -- might never be realized. But from this fear emerged a powerful desire to answer one of life's most profound questions: How can we ever know another person if we do not truly know ourselves? Facilitated in measures by a love affair with a younger man, dedicated study of Jungian psychology, and a deep dive into global spiritual practices, Winn transformed heartbreak into wholeness through communion with the divine in nature. By turning to her garden for guidance, sanctuary, and inspiration, and dialing closely into the flora and fauna around her, she ultimately discovered what is possible when we are willing look at our unvarnished selves with an open mind -- and see others with an open heart.

This is such a beautiful book. It is the story of Rebecca, the author and how she finds herself again after her husband of 25 years left her. It is inspiring and uplifting. It shows us how nature is a great healer and how grief is messy. I would recommend this book to everyone. It's beautiful.

I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy free of charge. This is my honest and unbiased opinion of it.

" ..always feeling alone and isolated, always waiting to be chosen by someone who might notice me and reach out to this shy, foreign little girl and make her feel welcome and wanted. I never felt I had time, the power, or even the right to choose my friends. I was always waiting to be chosen."

*sigh* Story of my life ?


"She is quick with her work, as if she knows that forces beyond her control could change her life forever, or end it."

I heard some praise about this #book. I don't even what genre it is, but let's just give it a go. Let me know what you're reading in #quarantine.
