Seed Keeper: A Novel by Diane Wilson
I don’t read many novels anymore though I get them for the bookstore but I found “THE SEED KEEPER” unique and fulfilling. Miss Wilson braids the many threads of this story with beauty and clarity, I feel like I know Rosalie (the main character) personally. I could understand her need for a home, of being lost and adrift. What I liked was how Miss Wilson interwove the threads of history and generations of family. The misunderstandings between husbands, children, between friends, the passage of trauma through those same generations. She told of the struggle of small farmers competing against big corporations and their GMO seeds. And sometimes it is possible to go home to find yourself.
