Groovy, man! 16 maggio 2012
Di Angie Ledbetter - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
After a three-decade absence, Robin "Birdie" Lormand returns to the scene of her 60s era funky beginnings in a small Louisiana town still filled with bad juju and memories. This tough but emotionally fragile woman must repair a lifetime of ills beginning with her twisted roots and with only a few rusty gardening tools if she's ever to live at peace in the present. What an interesting journey this late bloomer makes through the psychedelic poverty and isolation of bastard child to crumpled heap of womanhood beside her father's open grave at middle age . . . with both her first love and her current Significant Other by her side.

The author's skilled hand takes readers through a current day French Quarter New Orleans filled with quirky people, to the small town of her main character's birth along a Louisiana bayou where Birdie was partially raised by an encampment of hippies. You'll love the free spirited extended family Wiggins has created; a family that refuses to be crushed by life's harshness and injustices. Also enjoyable are the realistic descriptions of time and place; the lyrical turns of phrase; the tightly woven plot threads; and the unforgettable characters.

Root. Sprout. Blossom.: Life Bag of a Flower-Child is everything the title implies and more. Find out how Birdie Lormand manages to bloom against the odds. Reading the book may just take you on a trek backward to your own beginnings and lead to some eye-opening self-discoveries.

Heartwarming and heartbreaking, all at once 8 febbraio 2012
Di Mimi618 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Robin Lormand has been running from her bizarre and tragic past for 30 years, hiding out in New Orleans amongst the strange and colorful characters who populate Jackson Square. On a particularly odd summer day in the sweltering city, an unexpected phone call changes everything and Robin's carefully constructed walls of isolation come crumbling down around her when she realizes that it's time to face the demons of her past. Her return to the small hometown which chewed her up and spit her out 30 years earlier, awakens ghosts and memories which she would have preferred to keep buried forever. In one whirlwind weekend, Robin's life comes full circle and a long-ago prophecy from a stranger comes true at last, bringing Robin the peace she has sought her whole life. This novel will make you laugh and cry, sometimes simultaneously, and will bring back cherished memories for anyone who grew up in the turbulent sixties and seventies. It's the story of one woman's unconventional journey inward and homeward to find that karma's gift to her was not so elusive, after all. I read this book in one night because I couldn't put it down. It is definitely a keeper, one you'll want to read again and again.

Lana Wiggins has scratched my youth time and again in Birdie's story! I loved "Root. Sprout. Blossom: Life Bag of a Flower-Child" and spent just about as much time in reflection as in reading. Truly a captivating cast of characters in an intelligent, beautifully woven story!

I bought this book on my ipone kindel app. Everywhere i went the book went. I stayed up late reading this book. I hid in the bathroom at work to read this book. I even read the book in 5 o'clock traffic. The story captures you and you will yearn for more when it's over. Please make a sequel!!!

This is a book that I did not want to end. The main Character Robin aka Birdie takes you back through her childhood as she returns home after being gone for 30 yrs. Growing up during the Hippie era to a mother who raised her and her siblings on the wrong side of town and not understanding that her father who was one of the elite was trying to keep that part of his family a secret because he had another family, was hard for Birdie to understand. She grew up way before she had to and in doing that she learned alot of lessons along the way. Because she was a strong and confident child she didnt help them stay hidden...At ever turn she was making sure the town knew they were there but not in a decietful way...she was an innocent and just wanted what any child would want...recognition by a father who didnt want anything to do with her...or so she thought. Her life was not of of deprivation though...this book is something to read especially if you grew up in that era. Birdie became a strong independant woman because of her upbringing and it is great to see everything come full circle for her once she gets back home to a place she swore she would never set foot in again!
