Overview

"May 7th—There were days last winter when I danced for sheer joy out in my frost-bound garden in spite of my years and children. But I did it behind a bush, having due regard for the decencies..." Elizabeth's uniquely witty pen records each season in her beloved garden, where she escapes from the stifling routine of indoors: from servants, meals, domestic routine—and the presence of her overbearing husband. In her introduction, Elizabeth Jane Howard observes: "Elizabeth von Arnim went on to write some very good novels, but "Elizabeth and Her German Garden," its more rhapsodic passages nicely balanced by her acute and sometimes very funny perceptions about her family and friends, has a freshness, a freakish charm, an irrepressible energy that springs straight from the very source of her personality."

I do understand why the book was written but I did not think I would ever get through with the book. Am still not sure I like the male "hero".

A wonderfully literate novel of romance.
