Rules for Visiting - Jessica Francis Kane

Staff Pick

A delightfully quirky novel about a gardener at a local university who, in her 40s, lives with her father and much prefers the company of plants and trees to being with people. When she suddenly finds herself with an unexpected allotment of time off from work, she decides to reconnect with four long-lost friends in distant locales. The narrative is not only a lovely contemplation on social isolation and the reviving of friendship, but also a testimonial to the place of nature in our lives and communities and the need to be more attentive as humans to stewardship of our surroundings.
