“She pulls on her heavy boots and carries the water bucket past the rose bushes, past the herb garden, and back to the barn behind the house. Her steps kick up the scents of herbs: thyme, mint, and lemon balm. The plants send up new stems each year from the roots that survived the winter and grew up again along the path. The perfumed walk is a mystical part of her world. Walking here is her favorite part of mornings. Sometimes, this is the highlight of her day.”
― J.J. Brown, Brindle

I purchased the book as an anniversary present. The book was as exactly described. The book is one of my wife's favorites so I am sure she will love it. The extras that the seller provided with the book were an added bonus.

Shipping policies

I ship mostly USPS. However, sometimes I use UPS.

I always try to ship within 3-5 days or sooner, of receiving payment. (unless I am out of town which will be noted on top of shop near banner)
If you desire insurance the shipping cost will be extra and you
will need to convo me to let me know so that I can adjust the cost, prior to purchasing please....
Also, if you need the book shipped sooner than my regular shipping, you will be charged an extra $2.00 for shipping on an unscheduled shipping day. Please notify me prior to purchasing the book so that I can add the extra price to the regular shipping cost on the listing. So sorry for this inconvenience, however, I don't live next door to the post office and would have to make an additional "run" than my regular scheduled days.


If you use PayPal, I ship to the PayPal address you have listed on their site.If you need it shipped elsewhere you must contact me and let me know when you purchase.

I do ship internationally, however, each place is different so plese convo me if you do not see your country listed and I will let you know a price to where you live and change it accordingly on the ETSY site prior to your purchase so that when you add the item to your cart the proper shipping amount shows up. I ship First Class Internationally and their is NO Tracking. If you desire tracking for an international package you must let me know prior to purchase as it is very expensive and I will need to change the listing price for shipping accordingly. I usually ship my books with tissue wrap, ribbon, plastic bag and bubblewrapped in a large envelope to Europe or Asia as it is so expensive and if I ship in a box it sends the cost up dramatically. So if you want your item in a box, please send me a convo and I will adjust the price of shipping accordingly. I also do not insure my items unless requested by the buyer, because that too sends the price up on shipping.
I also have to ship internationally with no guarantees as items can get lost or held up in customs sometimes when shipping overseas and the USPS will not guarantee a package will arrive in another country...so if you desire a shipment internationally and do not desire to get insurance and tracking, I can not promise a refund for a lost shipment. I will e-mail proof that I have sent it though, by e-mailing the receipt and/or customs declaration number from the United States Post Office of the shipment. I cannot be liable for loss of shipped international items.
