Product description

Review

A Slow Passion is sweet, informative and sure to cheer exhasperated gardeners (Financial Times)

Once in a while, a book innocently intrigues the head and beguiles the heart. This is one of them ... Warm-hearted, witty and rigorous (The Times 2013-03-23)

A beautifully descriptive read, filled with childhood memories, extraordinary facts, and detailed illustrations (Western Daily Press)

It's the journey that makes this book special ... The moral of the tale is you're never too old or too uneducated to get out there and investigate. This is a hymn to a glorious kind of Englishness, in which the national pastimes of gardening, inquisitiveness and gumption win the day (Mail on Sunday)

A lovely reflection on the smaller, slower, simpler things in life (Top Sante Health & Beauty)

Book Description

One woman's investigation into the whys and wherefores of snails
