THE GARDEN OF EDEN tells the story of two women, Iris, a farm woman whose life is shattered by the premature death of her husband, and Iris's niece, Lannie, who is working alongside an aid organisation in the drought-ravaged deserts of Ethiopia. It is to Lannie that Iris turns for answers to the unresolved questions her husband's death has raised. And it is to Ethiopia and its tragic horrors that Iris travels in order to lose and ultimately to find herself again.

Her writing has a strength and directness that matches the prairie, people and landscape. There is little sentimentality here, but there is compassion, for those who protect the land, for the people who grow our food, and for those in other parts of the world who go without. Anyone who reads this novel will have their complacency about these issues shaken to the ground ( GAIL Anderson-DARGATZ)Book Description:
