    Tremendous historical novel of the early 1600s, as seen through the eyes of John Tradescant, gardener to the great men of the age. A traveller in a time of discovery, the greatest gardening pioneer of his day, yet a man of humble birth: John Tradescant's story is a mirror to the extraordinary age in which he lives. As gardener and confidante to Sir Robert Cecil, Tradescant is well placed to observe the social and political changes that are about to sweep through the kingdom. While his master conjures intrigues at Court, ... Show more

Another Smashing Read!

by Ellen B on Jan 25, 2013

Fans of 'The Other Boylen Girl' Series will be thrilled! Spanning the time period of James I, through the Restoration, this book is a page turner! Phillipa Gregory has always been a favorite author of mine...I read some of her books a very long time ago, and this 2 book series (the second book is Virgin Earth) are no exception! Her books can be re-read many times, and I believe I now own just about everything she has ever written! Highly recommended!

Generally likeable.

by mawillia on Jun 12, 2009

Liked reading this book, Ms. Gregory writes with her usual attention to period details. I feel it would have been better if she had concentrated more on the historical gardening and less on the love life of John Tradescant. Historical details are good as always. Will be reading the second book of the saga "Virgin Earth" next.
