Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May

Review by Ellie Ray

Katherine May’s Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times is a good December read to get you settled in for snowy days, or any time of the year that social distancing and quarantine continue as they have been. The intersection of personal experience, science, and literary criticism mirror the phases of motivation and lethargy one experiences during a winter or “wintering,” and I liked how the author helped the reader embrace the idea of rest and retreat as a way of coping with challenges large and small.
