The Lost Garden by Helen Humphreys 

Just finished this book. A quick read at 212 pages, it took me ages as I was reading another novel at the same time.  This book was super easy to get back into.  I found it comforting when I was settled back into the story of woman thrust into a job during WW 2 leading a group of land army girls.  Planting and growing crops for wartime.  The story focused on mostly love and loss as there is so much in war.  Finding solace in everyday labours and routines sometimes saves us and sometimes nothing can save us.  This isn’t Canadian author, Helen Humpreys’ first novel but reads like a first novel with all its heart and soul.  

Nice one!
