Where Lilacs Still BloomLarge Print - 2012
German immigrant and farm wife Hulda Klager possesses only an eighth-grade education, and a burning desire to create something beautiful. What begins as a hobby to create an easy-peeling apple for her pies becomes Hulda?s driving purpose: a time-consuming interest in plant hybridization that puts her at odds with family and community, as she challenges the early twentieth-century expectations for a simple housewife. Through the years, seasonal floods continually threaten to erase her Woodland, Washington garden and a series of family tragedies cause even Hulda to question her focus. In a time of practicality, can one person?s simple gifts of beauty make a difference?
