Margaret Roach worked at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia for 15 years, serving as Editorial Director for the last 6. She first made her name in gardening, writing a classic gardening book among other things. She now has a hugely popular gardening blog, "A Way to Garden." But despite the financial and professional rewards of her job, Margaret felt unfulfilled. So she moved to her weekend house upstate in an effort to lead a more authentic life by connecting with her garden and with nature. The memoir she wrote about this journey is funny, quirky, humble--and uplifting--an Eat, Pray, Love without the travel-and allows readers to live out the fantasy of quitting the rat race and getting away from it all.

And I Shall Have Some Peace There: Trading in the Fast Lane for My Own Dirt Roadis truly a journey of a book, but very, very internal, very quiet. It meanders here and there, but if you know Ms. Roach's demeanor at all you would fully expect that. Her mind often works much faster than her hands do. It's understandable because to become as high-up as where she was at MSLO you would need to do that. Executives are often done with something internally far earlier than most of us are. I hope, pray, wish to some day grow up to be Margaret. I dream of having the ability to follow my own true path, whatever that may be. I don't begrudge her one iota and I look forward to all that she will create, nurture and divine in the future. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart Ms. Roach for sharing such an intimate part of yourself so that others may take away at least a little bit in an attempt to learn how to truly fly. Thanks Margaret! Keep it up! Your passion is our inspiration.
I also highly recommend her other book. It's well worth it.
