Reviews

  • An extraordinary piece of work...it has a freshness, a freakish charm, an irrepressible energy

    Elizabeth Jane Howard
  • A gem of a book: rare, simple, innocent and charming

    Susan Hill
  • Unusual in the way that the sympathetic female narrator either cheerfully disregarded or, more often than not, gently mocked her husband and family. The book was a wild success and by 1899 it had run through 21 editions.

    Independent
  • A witty tale about marrying a richer, older man and finding liberation from a stifling world of elitism through gardening. It was a risky tale for its time, and still feels modern on both love and the garden.

    Guardian
  • Delightful

    Evening Standard
