The morning Guy leaves would seem like any ordinary winter morning to someone looking in the window of our small cabin in the clearing. (from the first line)
"Losing the Garden" is the memoir of a woman who was compelled to ask herself, "How could I stand by and watch my husband commit suicide?" It is an intimate examination of intricate and dark family histories and of a marriage that tried to transcend them.
From the Publisher:
In addition to recalling nearly three decades of living austerely in a cabin in Vermont, the author examines her thoughts regarding her husband's suicide, and attempts to come to terms with her marriage, family, and life choices.
Annotation:
Laura Waterman and her husband Guy moved to a homestead in Vermont in the 1970s, living a primitive life with few comforts on a few thousand dollars a year. After nearly 30 years of marriage, Guy--who had long suffered from depression--killed himself. His widow writes tellingly about their life together, his struggles with his demons, and finally his death and its effect on her.
