1. I definitely do not have a green thumb, so I‘m much better off enjoying other people‘s gardens.
2. See #1.
3. The tagged book, along with The Secret Garden.

Thanks for the tag, @Ddzmini 😊🌸🌼💐

Ddzmini I don‘t have a green thumb either unless it‘s an outside plant with natures help 🤪 21h

I really enjoyed my first Margery Sharp book. Like the rest of the #FurrowedMiddleBrowClub members, I find this to be a very pleasant read. Quiet and satisfying. Full of wit and shows a keen eye for human nature. Now which of her book should I read next?

Tamra I‘m so looking forward to uninterrupted recreational reading time to finally get to this one. You all have enjoyed it! (edited) 2mo
batsy Nice review! 💕 I'd love to read more by her. 2mo
Ruthiella I think Cluny Brown is her most famous and its supposed to be funny. I think I might try it next. 🤔 2mo

CarolynM Glad you enjoyed it too 🙂 And I agree Cluny Brown is lovely. 2mo

I think the consensus among members of #FurrowedMiddlebrowClub is this was a sweet yet occasionally sharp page turner about the life of a woman from the late 18th century to the 1930s. Separated into four parts and featuring (sort of) each garden in her life as she falls in love, marries and raises children.

Fun Fact: Margery Sharp wrote the children‘s books on which the Disney film The Rescuers was based. I LOVED those films and Miss Bianca. ❤️

Cathythoughts Lovely review of a lovely book. ‘Each garden in her life‘ beautifully said 💚 (edited) 2mo
batsy I was really interested to learn that she wrote the Rescuer books! I have a vague memory of those and feel like I should re-watch it. 2mo
Tamra That‘s an interesting factoid I wouldn‘t have guessed! 2mo

Ruthiella @Cathythoughts Thanks Cathy. It was a nice, gentle read. 2mo
Ruthiella @batsy @Tamra @quietjenn @BookNAround I only saw The Rescuers films and didn‘t even know there were books! I should have guessed. So many Disney properties have literary roots! 2mo
Ruthiella @LeahBergen Thanks Leah. I wish I had had tulips 🌷 on hand since they sort of bookend the novel, but alas! 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve never heard of The Rescuers till I looked up her books! Lovely review. 💛 2mo
Ruthiella @erzascarletbookgasm I‘ll bet the Miss Bianca/Rescuers books are charming! 2mo

A quiet, unassuming book, centered on the modest and respectable Caroline and her quiet, unassuming life. Deceptively simple and straightforward, it's also smart and witty. Without pretension, but full of insight into class and the various roles and relationships Caroline navigated throughout her life.

quietjenn Very curious if any of y'all have read Sharp's Britannia Mews? It makes an interesting contrast. 2mo
Tamra Sounds like a winner all the way around! 😄 I will stack the other you‘ve noted. 2mo
rubyslippersreads @quietjenn I have, and definitely noted the similarity. I‘m glad the situation in this book went better. 2mo

batsy I haven't read Britannia Mews but I really want to! That, Cluny Brown, and Stone of Chastity (off the top of my head :) 2mo
Ruthiella Great review! I have to post mine now too. I liked this one, my first Sharp, and suspect I‘ll read more from her in future. 2mo
LeahBergen I haven‘t read Britannia Mews yet but I just recently found a nice little vintage edition. 👍 2mo
LeahBergen @batsy Cluny Brown is a hoot! 😆 2mo
rubyslippersreads @batsy @LeahBergen I love it, but it‘s darker than most other Sharps. (I think I feel a reread coming on.) 2mo
quietjenn @rubyslippersreads me too! I thought it was interesting that this one came first. 2mo
quietjenn @LeahBergen @batsy yes, I think Cluny Brown was the first thing I read by her and it was delightful! 2mo
quietjenn @LeahBergen not surprised. That's very on brand of you 😉. 2mo
quietjenn @rubyslippersreads @batsy @LeahBergen @Tamra Same. Britannia Mews is probably my favorite by her. I really love it, but it's darker and almost a melodrama (but in a not melodramatic way, if that makes sense). 2mo
quietjenn @Ruthiella thanks! Looking forward to your thoughts! 2mo
LeahBergen @quietjenn 🤣🤣 I like that “on brand” idea of me! 2mo
Cathythoughts Great review! Caroline‘s character made it such a lovely read & the gardens 💚. I‘m going to order Britannia Mews just as soon as I have my morning coffee. Sounds good , Thankyou 👍🏻. 2mo
rubyslippersreads Sounds like a group read of Britannia Mews might be in our future. 😉 2mo
quietjenn @rubyslippersreads I could be persuaded pretty easily! 2mo
CarolynM Great review! I'm a bit slow, I hadn't connected Cluny Browne (which I loved) with this one 🙄😬 I'm going to order Britannia Mews right away and I'd love to read it with this group🙂 2mo

An utterly pleasant, soothing read—Sharp's wit is always gentle & incisive without being too biting. There are some notions of marriage that one must get around for a book set in the 1920s, but there are also subtle ways in which Sharp draws attention to gender roles & class. The epitaph Sharp chose for the book comes from Jane Austen: "Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery" & it is perfectly apt. I'm interested to read more of her work!

Cathythoughts Lovely review 💫I found it pleasant as you say.. I am interested to read more of her too. Aren‘t we having a great time with these furrowed middle brows 👍❤️ 2mo
Cathythoughts And soothing is the perfect word for this 👍 2mo

batsy @Cathythoughts We are having a wonderful time 😁 I love that the books are almost always guaranteed to end somewhat happily; I need books like that to balance out the dark, gloomy ones I tend to read 😂 2mo
Tamra Sounds like this one is going to be a comfort read. We could all use a bit of comfort now. 😌 Love the birds! 2mo
batsy @Tamra It is, & a welcome one! And thank you; I used a scarf as a Litsy photo prop 😆 2mo
Ruthiella Agree! This is was a soothing read. 👍 2mo

batsy @Ruthiella What I needed this week, to be honest 🙂 2mo

batsy @Dragon Glad to hear it, I've got my eye on that one! 2mo
LeahBergen Oh, definitely! I‘m excited! 😆 2mo
kspenmoll Your review was comforting, so stacked! 2mo
CarolynM Great review! Caroline and Henry seemed to lead almost totally separate lives - they certainly didn't communicate very much! Not sure how much that was a product of the time and how much it was their particular personalities. 2mo
batsy @kspenmoll Oh, goody! It's lovely for when you need just this type of book. 2mo
batsy @CarolynM Yes, it seemed a combination of both! Its interesting that Henry remained largely mysterious to the reader right up until the end. 2mo

Carrie's adult life had 4 distinct stages and each had its own garden. She was such a kind and gentle soul it was lovely to spend time in her company. I was both amused by and sympathetic to her bemusement at the goings on of her grown up children and I adored Lady Tregarthan.

batsy What a gorgeous photo 💚 I'm almost towards the end and I agree, Caroline is so gentle and loveable even when I didn't quite agree with her :) , and Lady Tregarthan is a fab character. 2mo
CarolynM @batsy I walked through the Botanic Gardens in Sydney today - it felt appropriate to read some of the book while I was there. 2mo

quietjenn I agree with what others have noted - Lady Tregathan is awesome and this picture is perfection. 😍 2mo
LeahBergen I want Lady Tregarthan to be my neighbour! And how about the Whiners? I loved that they were still called that as adults by the family. 😆 2mo

Came across this on p. 190 of my copy and wondering if anyone else's edition is like this? Did a quick search on Twitter and apparently there's no text missing, just a weird layout error.

batsy @CarolynM I hear you 😂 Luckily it appears we didn't miss out on anything! 2mo

batsy @Ruthiella Blank space on the page! Terror and anxiety! 😂 2mo
quietjenn How is and disconcerting! Glad nothing is missing. 2mo
LeahBergen Yes, mine was like this, too! I find odd little errors every once in a while in these Furrowed Middlebrow reprints. 2mo
batsy @quietjenn Yes! Glad that it wasn't missing text. 2mo
batsy @LeahBergen Oh, OK! Good to know. I don't mind these little irregularities as long as no actual words are missing 🙂 2mo

A novel that tells the story of one woman‘s life through the four gardens she calls her own doesn‘t seem likely to be the most scintillating of reads but this one had me turning the pages. We meet Caroline as a late-Victorian era teen and follow her up to the early 1930s. It sounds a bit like “damning with faint praise”, but this was a thoroughly pleasant read that left me with a smile on my face. How about you, #FurrowedMiddlebrowClub ? 😄

merelybookish Great review! They talked about this on Team& Books one day and I was intrigued! 2mo
Ruthiella I‘m at 63% (and on to garden no. 3). It is a quiet story, for sure. I did really like the commentary in her early married life about how men were so deferred to (white bread vs wheat, etc.) Margery Sharp is good at subtly questioning the status quo, I think. 🤔 2mo
Kimzey I‘m still on the first garden. Enjoying it so far. 2mo

quietjenn I'm still on garden two, but pleasant is really an apt adjective for it 🙂 2mo
elkeOriginal I absolutely love how everyone says which garden they are on instead of page or chapter. Fantastic! 2mo
batsy Great review. I'm on the third garden and agree with @Ruthiella on some of the subtle commentary on class and gender, while on the surface it's a very pleasant and easy read 🙂 2mo
Cathythoughts Yes Leah a lovely review , ‘a thoroughly pleasant read‘. I found it very calming too , I loved the four gardens and I loved Caroline. A page turner for me too ! (edited) 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm I‘m at the first garden too @Kimzey . 2mo
Tamra You make me want to just sit and fall into the gardens. 💚 I‘m reading in tiny dribs and drabs, but really liking it too. 2mo
LeahBergen @merelybookish I saw that on their episode list. I‘ll listen now that I‘ve read it! 😊 2mo
LeahBergen @Ruthiella @batsy Exactly! It‘s the subtlety of her writing that I like so much, I think. She paints her images (especially of gender roles) with such a light stroke. 2mo
LeahBergen @Kimzey @erzascarletbookgasm I hope you‘re both enjoying it! 😊 2mo
LeahBergen @quietjenn And with world news the way it is right now, “pleasant” is just what I need! 2mo
LeahBergen @elkeOriginal 😆😆 It does lend itself to that! 2mo
LeahBergen @Cathythoughts I really liked Caroline‘s character. She was so warm and simple but definitely had a bit of steel beneath her motherly exterior. 2mo
LeahBergen @Tamra Thank you! I‘m looking forward to your review and hope you like it as much as I did. 😊 2mo
Cathythoughts Yes I think Caroline was strong like a mountain… still , strong , enduring. Settled on the earth , like her love of garden & earth. (edited) 2mo
CarolynM I particularly enjoyed the generation gap and how perplexed Carrie was by her children's attitudes. Also, Lady Tregarthan on her daughter's situation - no children after 6 years of marriage "I don't know what they think they're doing. James is with his regiment, of course, but what ... do they get all these forty-eight-hour leaves for?" ??? 2mo
LeahBergen @Cathythoughts Well put! 👏 2mo
LeahBergen @CarolynM Loved that bit! And also “What? Did he seduce your parlour maid, too?” 😆 2mo
CarolynM "The physique of a navvy with the brains of a guinea-pig ... That's what I told Marion; she said his brains didn't interest her." ? 2mo
LeahBergen @CarolynM 🤣 My kinda guy! 2mo
CarolynM I know, right? I mean, she wasn't wanting to have a conversation with him 2mo
Sapphire What a gorgeous collection. What publisher or series is that behind the main title? 2mo
LeahBergen @Sapphire It‘s the Furrowed Middlebrow series from Dean Street Press. 😊 2mo
