Review

This ["Merry Hall] trilogy is consistently delightful, gentle, witty, and charming. Reading these books is like having your back scratched by your best friend . . . it's all so pleasant, you wish it will never end.

First published in 1956... it still holds great charm.

Delightful . . . best read on a sunny day while lounging in your own garden hammock. -- Elizabeth Licata "Buffalo Spree" (03/20/2003)

Garden vicariously with Mr. Nichols and expect to be captivated. -- Rosemary Read "American Rhododendron Society Journal" (03/12/2001)

I can think of no better book to start the new century than one that reflects the best of the old in such gracious, entertaining style.

In his entertaining and inimitable manner, Beverly Nichols wraps up his trilogy on the renovation of Merry Hall and its garden. -- Peter Kendall "American Rhododendron Society Journal" (10/14/2004)

Be prepared. Beverley Nichols' garden books are part PG Wodehouse and part James Barrie - full of hilarious Jeeves-like characters and events, with moments of Peter Pan magic. -- Bob Cowden "Pacific Horticulture" (05/31/2000)

The Nichols books are gardening classics; after reading one volume, you will want to read the others, so it would be best to buy all three at the outset. -- Diane Kostial McGuire "Journal of the New England Garden History Society" (12/04/2000)

This ["Merry Hall"] trilogy is consistently delightful, gentle, witty, and charming. Reading these books is like having your back scratched by your best friend . . . it's all so pleasant, you wish it will never end. -- Corinne Erly "Iowa Source" (04/12/2000)

The charm of "Merry Hall, Laughter on the Stairs" (mostly about the house) and "Sunlight on the Lawn" is undeniable, a mixture of the lyrical, the teasing, the understatedly witty and the self-mockingly camp. -- Ursula Buchan "Daily Telegraph (London)" (12/31/1999)

Synopsis

Mr Nichols' accounts of the rescue and renovation of Merry Hall, a rundown Georgian mansion and its garden.
