Roots and Sky: A Journey Home in Four Seasons chronicles Christie Purifoy’s journey of settling into her new home of Maplehurst, a Victorian farmhouse in Pennsylvania, complete with a large vegetable garden and a henhouse. Purifoy’s writing is beautiful, and it evokes a sense of warmth and inspiration. Her dreamy sentences include, “I take it all in – the food, the candlelight, the voices – as I rock slowly with Elsa in my arms. And I am full, so full, I am overflowing.”
I especially liked Purifoy’s reflections on her faith, family, and raising four children. As she takes readers through the four seasons, we see the life changes she encounters and the lessons she learns. The book serves as a good reminder to enjoy the present and appreciate the little things in life.
