Conversations with a Moonflower
"Chris never would have believed that a simple plant could lead her on such a remarkable a journey--a journey that would remind her of truths she had long ago forgotten."
"What on earth had just happened to me? It was a plant, for heaven's sake! And with the exception of the bright yellow blooms, it looked more like a weed than anything you would purposely put in a garden. But this mysterious plant had captivated me...."
My wife and I were visiting a friend in Layton, Utah, straining bees wax and making body butters, lotions, and candles (not to mention, bottling honey!) when our friend introduced us to her moonflower. She had read Christine Hall's book, Conversations with a Moonflower and Christine had given her a moonflower to plant in her own garden.
Our friend then lent us a copy of Christine's book. We sat on the couch in our living room that evening and read the book from cover to cover. After which, I immediately went to Amazon.com and purchased a copy of our own.
The book is comforting, pleasant and well written. Some of the phraseology was repetitious but other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this inspiring and insightful book.
And yes, we have planted our own moonflower and are anxiously awaiting the magic of watching it bloom!
