"There is an irresistible charm about [Sucher's] forthright revelations of eager expectations, disappointments and frustrations and occasional triumphs..." —Vermont Sunday Magazine

A longtime city dweller and expert storyteller takes a fresh look at gardening in Vermont, tapping the connection between the mysteries of the earth and those of the human spirit. With vividness and humor, Dorothy Sucher explores both her corner of Vermont and the many aspects of gardening—the satisfaction of shaping a landscape, the spirit of generosity in a land—based community, and the individuality expressed in a neighbor’s flowerbeds. Like Under the Tuscan Sun and Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, The Invisible Garden is a narrative celebrating the sublimity of nature and the soul’s inner reach.

DOROTHY SUCHER was an American author and psychotherapist who worked as a reporter at the Greenbelt News Review.
