Our modern world is infinitely more complex than the one previous generations inhabited, and the pace of life much quicker. Yet the way our grandmothers lived their lives - using knowledge passed from mother to daughter - is as relevant today as it's always been. In "From Mother to Daughter", Vivienne Bolton celebrates the rites and rituals that for centuries have marked the seasons around the world. As the year unfolds, she offers advice on everything from natural spring cleaning to the planting of seeds. In summer, the home and garden can be enriched with floral and edible bounty, from rose petal pot pourri to fresh herb cheeses. The autumn harvest offers an abundance of preserving, pickling and drying, plus advice on storing. For winter there are remedies for sore throats, recipes for steamed puddings and instructions on how to make candles and tie faggots for the fire.
