I so thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. For the passionate gardener, it's inspiring, but more importantly -- for me -- it's an intimate glimpse into Vita's thoughts and world, which is a treasure.

Vita Sackville-West was a prolific author, poet and memoirist in early 20th-Century Britain who is known not only for her writing, but for her not-so-private, private life. While married to the diplomat Harold Nicolson, she conducted a series of scandalous amorous liaisons with many women, including the brilliant Virginia Woolf. They had an open marriage. Both Sackville-West and her husband had sa ...more
