This book was a collection of 4 novellas. The stories took place from the 1600's thru modern times. The tie in was the stories all had a garden in them that the stories revolved around. This collection of stories had some stories that were better than others and it was pretty slow paced so I rate it 3 stars.

I've never cared much for novellas but, this was great. The stories were sweet and not trashy. I love the way each story was during a different era, beginning in the 1600's and ending during modern times. It was quite entertaining reading about the differences in society through the generations. I will definitely keep this book to reread.

I took this book to the beach one year and read it in two afternoons as I lay on the beach. It was a wonderful warm hearted quick read. All the stories were very engaging and I remember being quite swept away into that lovely old English Garden :-)
