Linda Brooks – Orchestra in My Garden: Lessons Learned from Digging Deep

ORCHESTRA IN MY GARDEN: Lessons Learned From Digging Deep shares the author’s journey of gardening, motherhood and creativity in 17 essayed reflections on the garden as a metaphor for life. Brimming with warmth, insight and wit it beautifully brings together personal and relatable essays, gardening tips, stunning photos from Linda’s own 14 year garden, and 22 original and thematically linked songs included as a free download, all reflecting the life lessons learned from literally digging deep.

ORCHESTRA IN MY GARDEN: Lessons Learned From Digging Deep marks Linda’s first turn as an author. She grew up on a third generation farm in New Brunswich, is an ECMA nominated musician with five albums of original work to her credit and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mount Allison University and a law degree from Dalhousie Law School.
Linda was formally recognized by the Nova Scotia House of Assembly in 2012 for inspiring recording work and positivity as an artist.
