Book Description

In this skip down the beds of her past and present gardens, Sherrill Layton offers us a humorous glimpse of her lives spent as child, sister, wife, mother, and, finally, herself. The birth of Sherrill’s voice never had a forum until grief forced her to speak.
Garden Yoga is a philosophical take on the seasons of our lives and our elemental evolution. Comedy and tragedy, frogs, and the incompetence of the Israeli justice system mix with earth and one woman’s truth to ring out among the chrysanthemums!

5.0 out of 5 stars So much energy! May 3, 2014
By C. R.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Creative use of language and rare vocabulary range make this wild roller-coaster ride of an autobiographical sketch both fun to read (sometimes out loud laughter and sometimes bittersweet smiles) and deeply moving. And then there are quiet thoughtful moments, delicately poised. Smatterings of gardening + astrology + family dynamics are tossed together in a delicious loquacious offering. Never boring, often provocative, always sharp and witty. I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars a unique declaration of a life April 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first few sections of the book I had to read with a dictionary at my side. Ms Layton has an admirable knowledge
of intelligent English and uses that gift all thru her story along with astrological references in her descriptions. By the middle
of the book I found it easier to tie the sections together and to recognize the strength, courage and sensitivity of this woman
to overcome the obstacles life presents her with. I felt after reading it, that there is more than one book in this autobiography.
Each section by itself would make an interesting book.

More About the Author

I had a biography somewhere for something but I can't find it. And anyhow, things have changed enough since then that I can just pump out a new one... and maybe I'll change this one in a week or so :)

My instructions from Amazon are to "Be creative: share anecdotes or interesting details about yourself with your readers." Well, frankly, I'd much rather hear about your interesting details! I'm the kind of person that visits a friend's house and when their mother offers dried fruit'n'nuts with the family photo albums (somehow these albums always come with a bowl of some treat or other), I can sit for hours looking at strangers' lives...

I'm a poet. I'm working on a novel. Garden Yoga is my first book.

Thanks for stopping by and do share your photo albums with me!

--SA Layton
