    Psychologist and physician Leonard Sax’s work with young people reveals that girls today have an incredibly brittle sense of self. Though they may look confident on the outside, teens and tweens are fragile inside, obsessed with grades, sports, networking sites, and appearances. They are confused about their sexual identity, as environmental toxins are accelerating physical maturity faster than their emotional maturity.

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Women are now told we can do it all, and encouraged to do so.....but doing it all is not easy, and often causes a great deal of overwhelming anxiety. Doing it all, when you're a woman, also can include being the mother you always wanted to be, in addition to being the best at your chosen (choices unlimited) profession. This is not necessarily attainable...

    From spring to summer, autumn to winter, a lot can happen in a single year.... Tilly Parker needs a fresh start, fresh air, and a fresh attitude if she is ever to leave the past behind and move on with her life. As she seeks out peace and quiet in a new town, taking on a plot at Ivy Lane allotments seems like the perfect solution. But the friendly Ivy Lane community has other ideas and gradually draw Tilly in to their cosy, comforting world of planting seedlings, organizing bake sales, and planning seasonal parties.

    So much character development, then felt like a very quick ending. Narration was just not my style...not awful, but I noticed it even after the first few hours, which is unusual. Usually I adjust quickly.

    Lou Winter is a lonely woman who no longer realises she's being taken advantage of - whether by her mother or unfaithful husband Phil. Then one day she spots a magazine article on clearing clutter. What begins as an earnest spring-clean soon spirals out of control. The more Lou lets go of, the more light can get to those painful places at the centre of her heart.
