In Unearthed, an abandoned garden gradually yields its secrets while allowing the gardener who revives it to discover insights into her own life. After author Alexandra Risen and her husband move into a house situated on an acre of central Toronto, she decides to restore the neglected land, and in the process she finds healing for her soul. Filled with delightful garden finds (unusual plants and structures), recipes for some of the edible plants, and intriguing discoveries in her family history, this memoir offers a multi-layered perspective on the relationship between humans and the natural world.
