Margaret Roach worked at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia for 15 years, serving as Editorial Director for the last 6. She first made her name in gardening, writing a classic gardening book among other things. She now has a hugely popular gardening blog, "A Way to Garden." But despite the financial and professional rewards of her job, Margaret felt unfulfilled. So she moved to her weekend house upstate in an effort to lead a more authentic life by connecting with her garden and with nature. The memoir she wrote about this journey is funny, quirky, humble--and uplifting--an Eat, Pray, Love without the travel-and allows readers to live out the fantasy of quitting the rat race and getting away from it all.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good, I read it twice in two years! The first time I read this book, I was a little bored and felt like Margaret Roach was droning on and on. But then, as a year passed, I realized that she was living the way I wanted to be living. There would be times over that year when I had glimpses of passages from her book in my mind and it happened so frequently, that I read it again. Only this time, I blew through it and enjoyed it so much more. If you wish you were living a quieter life, then reading this book will transport you. (Bonus: she worked for Martha Stewart!)
