11 posts | 4 read | 9 to read
A heart-warming novel inspired by real life events, about the brave women during WWI who worked in the historic grounds of London's Kew Gardens. Can the women of Kew keep the gardens alive in the midst of war? London, 1916. England is at war. Desperate to help in whatever way they can, Ivy and Louisa enlist as gardeners at Kew, the Royal Botanic Gardens, taking on the jobs of the men who have gone to fight. Under their care, the gardens begin to flourish and become a safe haven for those seeking solace--but not everyone wants women working at Kew. The pair begin to face challenges on the home front. When a tragedy overseas affects the people closest to them, can the women of Kew pull together to support themselves and their country through the darkest of times?

All the men are gone and no one is left except women to tend to the Kew Gardens in London during WWI.

If you need a book that is going to lift your spirits, you won't want to miss THE KEW GARDENS GIRLS.  

It is the most heartwarming book I have read in a while. 5/5

This week it's all Gardening and Vampires. I'll be listening to Blood Promise for Fictional Hangover Book Club.

Having been to Kew Gardens a few years ago I can't wait to tuck up into bed with the Gardening Girls after a long day of gardening. 👩🏻‍🌾🎧🧛‍♂️

Thanks to @AmyK1 for the tag.
I loved the tagged book@-
It‘s an ARC coming out next month.
I prefer outdoors but it is never warm enough and then I get too easily distracted outside.
No - just my usual #lmpbc and #kindresspiritsbuddyread and #the literarycrew

Thanks for the tag @AmyK1
I love spring for the warmer weather and longer days.
Not really - in fact usually when it gets nicer I‘m out more and read less.
The tagged book is an ARC I‘m currently reading and all about the Kew Gardens in London and flowers.

Spring means less time for Print Books and more #listenwhileyouwork. April 15th is the magical date for planting warm weather veggies and flowers. Until then plenty on the Spring Gardening To Do List. So a short Spring Stack concentrating on #botm & recent purchases that I'm excited for. And apparently Titles that begin with The. Will tag the rest in comments. 👩🏻‍🌾🌧📚

Such a delightful, heartwarming read.

Review 4/19

All the men are gone and no one is left except women to tend to the Kew Gardens in London during WWI.

If you need a book that is going to lift your spirits, a book that will teach you the meaning flowers have, and a book that will have you take a look at the wonderful friendships these characters have and that you hopefully have, you won't want to miss this book. 5/5

Based on real events, The Kew Gardens Girls follows some of the (in this book, fictional) women who took over working in London's Kew Gardens when WWI broke out and the men were sent to the Front. Heaps of suffragette-action and lots of friendships, we get to join them in the ups and downs of life during a part of the war.

Not my favourite writing-wise, but I really, really enjoyed the story. Also I think it may be on sale on #kindle currently?

Sliding into day 2 of #20in4 with this gem of a historical fiction. I have little to no idea what the Kew Gardens is (will be doing some investigative googling asap) but at 17%-ish in I'm loving the characters. Those 3,5 hours were yesterday's “harvest“. Aiming for the 7h-mark today! Hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday ❤️❤️
