Gather, a new memoir by Cynthia Pappas.
In her newest essay collection, Pappas details a life led deeply in place and attuned to the changing season of work on a family farm. Whether it’s about harvesting vegetables from the garden, joining with friends around the table, gathering her wits to outsmart a recalcitrant cow, or gathering her courage, Pappas’ prose will leave you warm and cozy. The essays move from self-deprecating to explorative to thankful. The author finds life to be praiseworthy and after reading this book, you’ll be convinced she’s right.
