This is truly a lovely story - highly recommended. I cannot remember when I enjoyed a book more. Like another reviewer, I found it hard to put down and felt sad when it ended. The characters, whilst not always likeable, are well drawn and the reader is made to care what happens to them. It is both sad and funny and one cannot help but empathise with the insecure Matty.
The author explores so vividly the therapeutic effect of gardening - something I know from my own experience - and the flower descriptions are delightful. Not having a garden of my own any more it made me feel very nostalgic for times gone by but glad to have a book which brought such memories back to me.
This is the first book by Eliabeth Buchan I have read but I now intend to read more. I await with eagerness her forthcoming book about Denmark, a country I know and love.
