I’ve always been interested in plants and, when I was young, toyed with the idea of studying botany. I’m not sure why that didn’t eventuate; perhaps it was simply that the attraction of other subjects was too strong. My interest in the subject has never left me, though.
This was such a good read. Set in Edinburgh in 1822, it includes botany, rare blooms, intrigue, and wonderful female characters – so much to enjoy!
