Elizabeth and Her German Garden (Google eBook)
Indoors are servants, meals and furniture. There, too, is the man of wrath, her upright teutonic husband, inspiring in Elizabeth a mixture of irritation, affection and irreverence. But outside she can escape domestic routine, read favorite books, play with her three babies--and garden to her heart's content. Through Elizabeth's eyes and unique wit, we watch the seasons come and go, each bringing with it new events, friends, and neighbors.
