"The Gardener" is a series of letters relating what happens when, after her father loses his job, Lydia Grace goes to live with her Uncle Jim in the city but takes her love for gardening with her.
There she initiates a gradual transformation, bit by bit brightening the shop and bringing smiles to customers' faces with the flowers she grows. But it is in a secret place that Lydia Grace works on her masterpiece--an ambitious rooftop garden--which she hopes will make even Uncle Jim smile.
Dedicated to and about the real life of spinster librarian, Elizabeth Brown.
If you are not excited about reading after this book, you may never be. She has so very many books that she just simply does not know what to do with them.
To book ends with a picture of a library in her name.
Lovely story and beautiful illustrations.
