Editorial Reviews

Review

"Paradise in Plain Sight, for all its talk of gardening and the little details of domestic life, is one of the most thoroughly and unapologetically Zen books I have read in a long time.  This is not easy Buddhism. This is a book that speaks as the tradition itself does: unflinchingly confident and perfectly at home with not knowing. May we all be so fortunate as to one day open a gate and find ourselves standing in a place so spacious, so overgrown and full of possibility. And may we say yes."
-- Koun Franz, Sweeping Zen

"A skillful blend of personal narrative and insightful dharma teaching . . . Miller's prose is always fresh and potent, grounded in the knowledge that anything we do can become a gateway to profound realization"
-- Dharma Spring

"Readers find it easy to relate to the author's story of finding her way out of fear, selfishness, and doubt to buy a home with a 100-year-old Japanese garden. She takes stock of her rocks, bamboo, and ponds to describe concepts of faith, emptiness, and "right view" . . . stories of bountiful fruits, flowers, and leaves relate thoughts on forgiveness, compassion, and letting go." -- Library Journal

"This little slip of a book, like the best of all soulful books, slips deep in your soul practically unnoticed. Suddenly, you're sitting bolt upright, because you've been reading quietly along and you realize you've just inhaled a sentence that packs a spiritual wallop. You needn't be a gardener, nor inclined to long hours of meditation, nor a disciple of Zen. And you certainly needn't travel to the nearest Japanese garden to unearth the truths Miller so generously lays at your mud-sodden soles." -- Chicago Tribune
