One-third historical fiction, one-third romance, and two-thirds stories of women gardeners, The Last Garden in England is such a delightful read that the book truly adds up to more than a whole. Bestselling author Julia Kelly weaves stories of different women from a century ago to the present, the key connection being a gorgeous but forgotten garden designed by groundbreaking (fictional) garden designer, Venetia Smith. The author knows well both her gardening and how to write an enchanting, multi-layered romance. The Last Garden in England is historical, horticultural, and romantic (but not racy).
