A book worth checking out just based on the lovely botanical cover. Marta McDowell writes about Frances Hodgson Burnett‘s various gardens and how they influenced her stories, especially The Secret Garden. This well-researched book is conversational in tone & there are loads of gorgeous photos. This makes a great companion piece to The Secret Garden by Burnett but be aware there are spoilers in this nonfiction book. #gardens #nonfiction #coverlove

Absolutely delightful! I learned some fascinating facts about Frances Hodgson Burnett. The book also has lots of lovely pictures: photos of Burnett‘s life & her gardens, various illustrations from different editions of “The Secret Garden” and even some drawings/paintings of flowers. Will be appealing to anyone who loves flowers, gardens, and of course, “The Secret Garden!” Will have to read more by this author…
