A VICTORY GARDEN FOR TRYING TIMES

by | Read by Nan McNamara

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This beautifully written memoir is narrated by Nan McNamara. When Debi Goodwin's husband undergoes aggressive, invasive treatment for cancer, she sooths her anxieties by planning something healing and constructive: a victory garden like those nurtured during the World Wars. McNamara's pleasant voice echoes the author's determination as she hopes for the best and braces for the worst during the months-long wait to learn if the treatment is successful. McNamara reflects the author's cautious patience during her husband's remission in the spring, when she plants her garden and waits optimistically for a lush harvest. At the conclusion of the growing season, when the medical prognosis becomes poor, McNamara's quiet tone reflects Goodwin's determination to avoid wallowing in sorrow.
