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.

Singer. Songwriter. Author. Mom. Wife. Dog lover. Wannabee master gardener. 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 Brunswick, 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. The Nova Scotia House of Assembly formally recognized Linda in 2012 for inspiring recording work and positivity as an artist.
