Product description

Review

It s part travelogue to some of France s best and most historic gardens, part treasure trove of historical anecdotes.... Delve deeper, and you ll discover a book that s also a philosophical exploration of national identity, a partial memoir, and a meditation about the role gardens play in conveying our aspirations, our values even our memories -- The Scotsman

"Don emphasises that it is not a guide to French gardens but merely the story of a man travelling around France visiting a few gardens on the way. He offers a glimpse at some of the love affairs, feuds, thwarted ambitions and desires behind gardens such as Versailles, Vaux le Vicomte and Courances -- Daily Telegraph

"Engaging, informative and often surprisingly critical...more poignant and valuable than any mere travelogue or garden guide -- --Evening Standard
