Reviews

"Laurie Lawlor's writing reflects her love for her wetland. At times the writing is so beautiful, so lyrical, it should be set to music."--Joanne Flemming, Wisconsin writer
"A lovingly written work that captures the atmosphere of a wetland." --Elizabeth McBride, Recipient of the Ellis-Henderson Outdoor Writing Award 1997, 1999 and contributor to the" New York Times"
""This Tender Place" parallels Lawlor's personal growth and spiritual regeneration with that of the wetland and challenges the reader to look twice at the natural resources that surround us yet are so often taken for granted."--"Nature Conservancy"
"In the wetlands of southeast Wisconsin, Lawlor initiates a genuine relationship with the land. From spring peepers to sandhill cranes, there is an unyielding sense of her direct participation with nature, and through her encounters and descriptions one feels a new sense of belonging--a continuity with all life through time."--Nina Leopold Bradley
"Lawlor has a remarkably transparent style, the perfect vehicle for capturing the subtle beauty of the fen, a rare and precious form of wetland fed by underground limestone springs. . . Like the surprising fecundity of the unassuming fen, Lawlor's seemingly placid book teems with hidden life and significant observations, as she reveals the beauty and inestimable value of an often-maligned but truly essential natural landscape."--"Booklist"
