Her House by Donna Marie Merritt
HER HOUSE is a culmination of fine observation. Donna Marie Merritt reflects on those details that so often pass by undetected, yet play an enormous part in our lives. Along the way we examine our fragile bargain with nature—and how close we are to chaos when nature reminds us just who is in charge. Long countryside walks, a good glass of wine, family and friends, growing older… all these Merritt celebrates with gratitude, prompting us to truly see what surrounds us, reminding us that memory is precious and sweet.
