"An intimate, lesson-filled story of what happens when one of America’s best-known garden writers transplants herself, rooting in to a deeper partnership with nature than ever before." —Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden When Page Dickey moved away from her celebrated garden at Duck Hill, she left a landscape she had spent thirty-four years making, nurturing, and loving. She found her next chapter in northwestern Connecticut, on 17 acres of rolling fields and woodland around a former Methodist church. In Uprooted, Dickey reflects on this transition and on what it means for a gardener to start again. In these pages, fol­low her journey: searching for a new home, discovering the ins and outs of the landscape surround­ing her new garden, establishing the garden, and learning how to be a different kind of gardener. The sur­prise at the heart of the book? Although Dickey was sad to leave her beloved garden, she found herself thrilled to begin a new garden in a wilder, larger landscape. Written with humor and elegance, Uprooted is an endearing story about transitions—and the satisfaction and joy that new horizons can bring.

I am a Trinidad-born American citizen settled down with my husband and two children in New Jersey. I was educated in London with a Business Administrative Degree and my occupation was that of a print and fashion model. After the abolition of slavery by the British, a vast number of Immigrants were taken from the Indian sub-continent where they became indentured laborers in the Caribbean. Desperate people were thrown together under tight conditions with rigid plantation discipline under the British Empire. This is a breathtaking, fascinating narrative biography of my ancestors who went to work in the cane fields under the excruciating commands of the British Empire where after five years they were freed and became successful businessmen. This work is painstaking in documenting this true story. It is alive, definitely dramatic, clear and exceptionally moving. My research into this story has never been told before and now must be unfolded because of its powerful and unique history of past times that were unknown to people all over the globe. The story traces my family's history from the streets of Calcutta to the sugar cane plantations of Trinidad owned by the British and these East Indian indentured laborers living in slave-like conditions, then starting several successful businesses and growing from poverty. I trust that you will see this book as not just my own family's journey but in a large measure indicative of the struggles, successes, and failures of the many thousands of Indians who came to the New World as indentured laborers and worked so hard to become successful. Our story is largely unknown in America It is alive and I have tried to make the story inspirational and full of human kindness.

Fifteen long years have passed since Cathy Clarkson bid goodbye to her eight-year old daughter Emily, as she happily rode her bike off to school. But, a violent storm revives the anguish and memories. A large tree is uprooted in the backyard of their close friends, and Emily's little pink bicycle with the white handlebars is laid bare. Hundreds of miles away, psychic investigator Jeff Kavanaugh reads about the discovery in the news, and the photo of the bicycle conjures up visions in his mind of the long-lost Emily, and what she might have encountered the day she disappeared. He's also convinced that, after all this time, she's still alive. Jeff and his partners in his private detective agency offer their services at no cost to the Clarksons. As they begin to connect the dots in a vastly more complex and diabolical plot than they imagined, Jeff and his team valiantly attempt to pull the curtain away from a powerful and dangerous puppeteer who himself has powerful benefactors.
