  • Salley Vickers sees with a clear eye and writes with a light hand. She's a presence worth cherishing

    Philip Pullman
  • Vickers writes of relationships with undaunted clarity

    Adam Phillips
  • Heart-warming, beautifully written and moving

    The Times on 'Grandmothers'
  • No one can dig down into the shrouded recesses of the human heart quite as forensically as Vickers

    Sunday Times
  • The Gardener is a novel of regrowth & regeneration, of sisters overcoming a toxic parental legacy & of the healing power of seed packets. Nicely prickly where other writers can be blandly thornless, Vickers never lets her reader, or her heroine, subside into complacency; there is always, she reminds us, more work to be done. This is the perfect fictional promise to draw us through a harsh winter.

    Patrick Gale
  • An escapist, involving novel about relationships and two siblings coming to terms with their childhood and each other

  • Steeped in a sense of the redemptive power of place, Sally Vickers's 11th novel is a paean to green-fingered regeneration that is both rigorous and charming

  • With its sensitively drawn characters, this is a quiet and intelligent hymn to the restorative power of nature. Delightful

    Mail on Sunday
  • The bestselling author of Miss Garnet's Angel and The Librarian, Vickers has been a Jungian therapist and her novels have always featured personal growth and transformation. This is no exception, as Hassie weathers bereavement, a
    break-up and midlife despair, but finds a sense of new beginnings and a feeling for the power of place. It also has some sharp social observation about the reality of moving out to the sticks in post-Brexit Britain

    Sunday Times
  • Salley Vickers is skilled at transforming the everyday into something haunting. This tale of a woman's search for inner peace is no exception
