This was such a lovely book. She writes of her family‘s history and her own with such love and compassion, sadness and joy. These family stories are juxtaposed with stories about her observations of the beauty and brutality of the natural world, as well as paintings by her brother. I found the Derek Walcott quote at the end really summed it up - “So much to do still, all of it praise.” 5⭐️

britt_brooke Nice review! I‘m excited to read this. 1mo

All the stars! I can‘t tell you how accurately she captured both my feelings when caregiving and the grief I felt losing someone I love.

Late Migrations is Margaret Renkl‘s debut book. It is a perfect mix of memoir and nature writing. The author shares stories of her girlhood in Alabama and the stories of her ancestors. More interesting though is Renkl‘s reflections on global climate change as observed in her Tennessee backyard. Grief and joy are tangled together in this unassuming book, which is brilliantly illustrated by the author‘s brother. Read this one!!
