This is a story about how organic farming saved the world Wait It isn’t While holding the soil in my hands I yearned to get closer to it to let it soak into me I glanced around and then made my body prostrate in the soil settling the right side of my face to the earth I pulled my shirt up and let the coolness touch my belly It felt like life to me It was malleable forming to the contours of my face There was something comforting about the act Perhaps because I knew there was life in the soil that it contained organic properties of living matter that it was filled with microbes and nutrients that nourished life and growth According to the Book Group Discussion uestions this is essentially a love story I guess in a way it is true; through the people around her Anna has to learn how to love herself again and how to carve a place into her life for the husband she’s left behind but still loves But that story got buried deep underneath a layer of ever returning praise of organic farming and it kept me from connecting to it It wasn’t excuse the pun included organically in the story at all; instead it felt like organic farming propaganda It started to really irritate me after a while I caught Lena watching Torbjorn a smile in her eyes She was admiring him loving himI gasped and eyes turned to me I shook my head The look in her eyes was what got me Granted it wasn’t just the organic farming I think parts of what kept me at a distance was the way the book is written It’s all very clinical very detached Plus there is a huge emphasis on people’s looks – from Kai telling her that if she had been ugly he wouldn’t have agreed to help her to Anna commenting on her mom’s ‘lovely figure’And there was an undercurrent of racism that made me very uncomfortable At one point she talks with a guy on the phone and she “imagined he was a big black man” what a woman who won’t listen to her must be ignoring her because “she appeared to be very white very English speaking” and of course the one absolute villain in the story is “a large man who looked Samoan with black eyes and a shaved head” Stereotypes abound all over such as the Irish guy on the farm who calls her “lass” every other sentence Anna got on my nerves so much She is so incredibly self centred I can’t fault her for running away when her life fell apart; that made sense But even when she was getting better when she was healing when she set out to try and get back the life she’d lost she still only thought of her own pain her own tragedy And when she’s looking to others it’s with so much judgement in her eyesI liked a lot of the side characters though Lena’s uiet strength and Clara’s youthful resilience really made the first parts of the book for me I would have loved a story about either of them instead of the story we got Seriously I wanted to know all about Lena from the very first time we met her And even though we got snippets of her story kind of the CliffsNotes version I wanted a book about herKai her husband – whose name means ‘rejoice’ which I like for the irony since in this story he’s really a source of pain – didn’t really make enough of an appearance for me to form an opinion of him Even through Anna’s eyes he was uite nondescriptThe first four parts of the story taking up about six months takes place in a small farm in Sweden kind of sheltered away from the real world It’s a place Anna needed to gather her bearings and it’s a place that had a huge impact on the story After a short interlude in the United States the sixth part and the small epilogue takes place in Honduras The entire story including the epilogue takes up about 14 months Looking forward had become as painful as looking back It’s unfortunate because the story itself was interesting Seeing someone crawl back from the depths of despair especially in a way that isn’t instantaneous or sudden or saved by romantic love is a great story Her background slowly unfolds through flashbacks and memories but I’m glad they didn’t take up the biggest part of her story Her journey from where she came to where she’s going that’s the interesting bitMy favourite part was the fourth part at which point we are allowed to know what happened – it got annoying that she kept it hidden away as if the tragedy she’d survived didn’t scream at you from the very first chapter – and she’s starting to look to the future I think this was the most healing part; after this she’s just scrambling to get her old life back as if she was the only one who had to change and leave something behind

Her NowhereFight for whatever love remains in the gaps of their shattered familyHer Nowhere is a tearjerker about relationships and what they can survive if we let them It is appropriate for book club discussion about our own uniue tragedies how we respond to them how they shape us humanitarianism organic farming and the imperfection of motherho. 4 12 STARS This book spoke to me It was a little dark but I never lost the sense of Hope waiting just a page away I absolutely LOVED the way the story was told It moved so uietly from present to past as the story builds with just the right amount of tension and expectancy The analogy of loss portrayed through gardeningfarming was exuisite I have experienced great loss in my life but never had to endure the loss of a child and I could physically feel the pain of Schwaiger's characters It made me ponder too When someone loses a child it seems as if detailed memories come unbidden through triggers of seemingly small things and yet I can't recall in much detail my own children's toddler years and youth so is it because they lived constantly in motion and creating new fresh memories I'm grateful for the knowledge and testimony that I have about this Life and what happens when we leave to the next one I don't know how people survive loss of any kind without a sure testimony of our Heavenly Father's love and support This book was one I'll remember for a long time and not because of the darkness but because of the light of hope and forgiveness it portrayed
