The Morville Hours: The Story of a Garden
An exquisitely written book about one particular English garden—and about the arc of life.
With each chapter bringing to life an hour of the day or night—from the crunch of grass underfoot at midnight on a frosty New Year's Eve to the bloom of blue-black damsons picked on a golden September afternoon—Swift pulls us into her world and, at the same time, expands and illuminates our own. For anyone with a passion for gardens and gardening, The Morville Hours will be unforgettable.
