Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This handsome addition to the series that includes Gardens in Provence (Abbeville Pr., 1992) provides highlights of 40 spectacular gardens in Normandy, France. Wonderful photos of these estate gardens are the work's primary feature. Valry, a knowledgeable garden writer, gives an overall historical and geographical perspective to gardens in Normandy. She then leads the reader through the gardens, giving background and descriptions useful for casual visitors. A visitor's guide in the appendix lists garden addresses, telephone numbers, and the dates each garden is open to the public. A plant list is included as well as a listing of the ideal season to visit each garden. Travelers to France who are planning garden visits will find this a fine source for historical garden and plant information. This is an optional purchase for most public libraries and will be most useful where there is a demand for sources on European estate gardens.-Dale Luchsinger, Athens Area Technical Inst., Ga.
