A Golden Glow,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Greenhouse (Paperback)
A beautiful, uplifting book with a golden glow. Stunning descriptions of Icelandic scenery and flora, and of the southern European village and monastery rose garden. If you are in to lava flows, botany, fatherhood, roses, monasteries, or even cookery, or are a bit of a film buff, there should be something here for you. The child, Flora Sol, is absolutely endearing. This is an unusual, but very readable book, and I think that the author is a genius. On a surface level it is very worth while reading, but there is a lot going on below the surface as well. Read it and see.

I agree with this review Pilgrim. It is a wonderful book. Very clever characterisations of the characters and it evokes the atmospheres of the various locations superbly. Can't wait to read her other works.
