Earthed Zusammenfassung

Earthed: A Memoir Rebecca Schiller

___________

'A beautiful memoir of one small plot of land and one complex human mind; a story of our interconnection and an ambitious search for the truth.' Amy Liptrot

'A stunner. Full of wisdom about the world we are all looking at with new eyes.' Emma Freud

___________

After moving to a countryside smallholding, Rebecca Schiller finds her family's new life is far from simple. Overwhelmed by what she has taken on and reeling from the turmoil in the wider world, her mind begins to unravel. And so she turns to her two acres, and to the women of this land's past, searching for answers and hope.

Here, she stumbles on a wild space of imaginative leaps, where she begins to uncover the hidden layers of her plot's history - and of herself. As the season's shift, the ground under Rebecca's boots offers hard lessons, delivering unflinching glimpses of damage done to peoples and the planet and revealing brutal truths about the seeds she holds in her hands.

Yet as a New Year arrives, offering a life-changing diagnosis and then a global pandemic, Rebecca begins to move forwards with understanding: the smallholding has become her anchor and her family's shelter; an ancient oak tree her talisman and her guide. Because when we find ourselves lost in a strange land, we all need something to hold on to - a way to keep ourselves earthed.

'A much-needed story of resilience drawing on the histories of the people who have gone before and to whom this land once belonged.' Dr Pragya Agarwal, author of Sway
