'Why Women Grow shows the beauty and grit of tending the soil in difficult times. Alice Vincent shows us that the cure for uncertainty is to get mud under our nails' - KATHERINE MAY, author of WINTERING

'Alice's writing is sublime. Gentle yet certain, warm yet fierce. Why Women Grow is an exquisite exploration of our many womanhoods and the reasons why some of us find our steadiness and solace in our relationship to the earth. I adored it.' - CLAIRE RATINON, author of UNEARTHED

'Alice Vincent has written something wonderful. Why Women Grow is a book that not only presents us with the beauty of the earth but asks one of the most fundamental questions to the human condition: what does it mean to create? I loved the way she wrote about the ambivalent power of the maternal question. I was delighted to travel around the country with her, digging into people's lives, private spaces and plants. We need more books about women, wombs and our role in the world; Alice has done that with charm, humour and an impressive depth of knowledge' - NELL FRIZZELL, author of THE PANIC YEARS

'With an infectious curiosity and openheartedness, Alice Vincent delves into the complex and fascinating reasons women tend their gardens. She illuminates stories of defiance, creativity and resilience as she excavates what it means to be a woman on the cusp of a new life stage' - LULAH ELLENDER, author of GROUNDING

'Praise for Rootbound:Reading this book is like breathing fresh spring air. Rootbound is achingly honest and earthily good, a beautiful hymn to wild hope, strength and tenderness, in nature and in ourselves. I loved it.' - Charlotte Runcie, author of Salt on Your Tongue
