Gardens hold a special place in many authors’ lives.

This book examines eighteen gardens owned by poets, writers, and novelists.  Beautiful photos document the authors’ creative spirits that not only thrive in the written word but also in their gardens. From Roald Dahl to Virginia Woolf we follow many authors through difficult times, financial hardships, personal heartbreaks, in addition to joy and professional acclaim from their writing while tending gardens they loved.
