So it is not surprising that Céleste developed as a small girl a strong interest in her father's work and the transplanting of delicate plant learned as well as the finishing of cherry trees. Her father was not a man of great words, and said perhaps more than with his plants with his daughter. But he also enjoyed the proximity to the Joint gardeners who distracted him from his marital problems. Beatrice lived in the same court that is indeed, but spatially separated from her family.

packed by enthusiastic garden designer and author Alexandra Jansen freshly baked entertaining reading that culminates in the ventilation of the mystery of St. Walfrid.

Occasionally the narrative drifts off into the colloquial and the chance find at a flea market appears to me somewhat contrived. Nevertheless, produced a significant debut and perhaps the author ever enough ideas for a sequel?

Part of the novel takes place in Saaregmünd and surrounding areas. Some time ago we traveled for a week boating holidays in the area. Too bad there is no occasion, a priory led to a great garden or so to visit the garden of the author! After all, remains to comfort the link to the website the author.
