Review: The Seed Keeper

The Seed Keeper The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you loved Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants, this is a novel along similar themes. When Rosalie's husband dies, she returns to her father's home in Minnesota on Dakhota land, a place she has not been since she was removed and placed into foster care as a child. The timeline moves back and forth and sometimes the pov switches to another character as it tells the story of a people, the land, the seeds, and those who keep them.

CW for those already experiencing trauma surrounding residential schools, foster care, and the general removal of culture and home that so many endured.
