Luckily I read the second one first as it happened, otherwise I don't think I would have got the second one. This was o.k. but long and probably could have been edited down to half size!

Format: Hardcover
This is a fascinating story of the political turmoil surrounding King Charles I from a wonderful perspective. It was very clever how it entwined gardening with the turbulent times of the era, how the great men found a type of release in the garden away from the real world.
However I found it the tiniest bit bland after the 'Wise Woman'. Maybe I just didn't agree with his personal heirarchy, where a woman barely rates a mention after God and King and the Lords? A sign of the times! I have the sequel on my shelf and look forward to losing myself in it.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Stephanie Cowell on March 26 1999
Format: Hardcover
The author tells the story of the legendary 17th century English gardener John Tradescant leisurely and clearly because he is a man of the earth, but when the story mounts and he meets the love of his life the writing is obsessive and often exquisite, and the more unusual because the love is nothing like he could have expected and he is by then sixty years old. I had tears in my eyes. An unforgettable character. I am also an English historical novelist writing of the same century and I was swept away.
