Digging In Read Online Free - In author Loretta Nyhan’s warm, witty, and wonderful novel, a widow discovers an unexpected chance to start over—right in her own backyard.
Paige Moresco found her true love in eighth grade—and lost him two years ago. Since his death, she’s been sleepwalking through life, barely holding on for the sake of her teenage son. Her house is a wreck, the grass is overrun with weeds, and she’s at risk of losing her job. As Paige stares at her neglected lawn, she knows she’s hit rock bottom. So she does something entirely unexpected: she begins to dig.
As the hole gets bigger, Paige decides to turn her entire yard into a vegetable garden. The neighbors in her tidy gated community are more than a little alarmed. Paige knows nothing about gardening, and she’s boldly flouting neighborhood-association bylaws. But with the help of new friends, a charming local cop, and the transformative power of the soil, Paige starts to see potential in the chaos of her life. Something big is beginning to take root—both in her garden and in herself.

She had ever loved had been taken

Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken...

Based solely on the blurb I figured that Digging In would be a fairly heavy read, following Paige as she works through her grief after losing her husband. While grief is definitely at the core of this novel, it wasn’t depressing or bleak, instead it was full of humor, wit and heart which was just...

I want to scream from the rooftops, "I love this book!" What a delightful, funny, authentic, and rather wise story about the healing power of gardening and the struggle to re-root yourself after crippling loss. Paige is an extraordinary heroine: smart, funny, kind, outspoken, quirky. You feel the...

What a delightful, sparkling and hopeful story. I had no idea what I was walking into. When Ashley at Amazon Publishing brought me this copy, I think she knew this wasn't my usual type of read... and then told me it was worth it and it absolutely IS!
The only thing I could even nitpick at is that...

I was given a copy of this book from Amazon Publishing #partner for an honest review. If I was judging a book by its cover I would think this one would be humorous and a bit quirky. It was that and so much more. Paige is dealing with her grief over the sudden death of her husband and soul mate tw...
