this wonderful wholesome gem of a novel It was so bright written with Julia Kelly s love of her character s I would give it 100 stars if I could I also loved every single one of the character s They were deep and thoughtful to each other It is an intricately told tale about our humanity coming together for the greater good of working together to make ourselves better Wait there are two character s that I almost forgot about that were unlikable during the earliest timeline this wonderful novel was set in 1907 They were the first owners of Highbury Manor for the cruel way they treated icon Venetia Smith but I understand that they were acting the way they did because it was a sign of the times that they were living in that dictated the way they reactedIt is present day and Emma gets a dream job She gets the chance to restore the gardens at Highbury Estates to their former glory the way her hero Venetia Smith designed them in 1907 When Emma meets Sydney and Andrew the new owners of Highbury Manor and Sydney finds Venetia Smith s original sketches she realizes that this restoration work will be highly rewarding Only when they discover that there is a missing key to the gate of the Winter Garden section do they begin to wonder what happened to that key to the completely overgrown and long neglected section The Winter garden section has a rusty locked gate but whyIt is 1907 and Venetia Smith is known and highly regarded to designing beautiful gardens for the rich such as bankers and lawyers She has a reputation for creating beautiful rooms with her uniue talent and she is hired for the ambitious job of doing that at Highbury Manor She will create a masterpiece of the likes of what can only be described as a Monet painting Each section of this multifaceted garden of different rooms outside will bloom with rich and brilliant luxurious blooms that can only be described as watching the many bursting colors of fireworks exploding in an American 4th of July skies Something heartbreaking will happen to her that forces her to flee to America and start a new life thereIt is 1944 and Diana Symmonds is newly widowed from losing her beloved husband in World War II Her home has been taken over by the the British wounded from the war In short Highbury Manor has been reuisitioned as a convalescent hospital Beth has been put into service as working as a land girl

she can work in London and travel the world Something eually as devastating happens to Mrs Symmomd s and an odd bargain is made between Stella and Mrs Symmond sThere is a strand of thread that connects all of these different timelines and these wonderful women It may seem like a lot of character s to keep track of but I assure you it was easy This is a beautiful well crafted story that I loved and can t recommend highly enough I am certain my review didn t do this gem of a novel justice This is another one of my favorites of 2020 I wish that I came across novels like this that absolutely shimmers with sparking glitter The descriptions of the gardens where some of the most beautiful imagery I have ever read They are reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier s novel Rebecca only much stunningly so This is one I will definitely be purchasing for that special bookshelf and also for special family and friend s I highly recommend that you pick up this special book for yourself It has all the feels and will please all of your sensesPublication Date January 12 2021Thank you to Net Galley Julia Kelly and Gallery Books for generously providing me with my ARC in exchange for a fair and
