Review quote

"Bewitching and original. . . . Today. . . not a single authentic Elizabethan garden survives--all the more reason to welcome a book that uses a wealth of evocative detail to recreate this lost world of bright bowers and labyrinths. . . . Martyn's scrupulous research restores life to . . . a landscape so enchanting. . . . [An] exquisite book." --"New York Times Book Review" (February 12, 2012)
