At the nursery she runs with her sisters on the New England coast, Sorrel Sparrow has honed her rare gift for nurturing plants and flowers. Now that reputation, and a stroke of good timing, lands Sorrel an unexpected opportunity: reviving a long-dormant Shakespeare Garden on an English country estate. Arriving at Kirkwood Hall, ancestral home of Sir Graham Kirkwood and his wife Stella, Sorrel is shocked by the desolate state of the walled garden. Generations have tried, and failed, to bring it back to glory. Sorrel senses heartbreak and betrayal here, perhaps even enchantment. Intrigued by the house's history, especially the haunting tapestries that grace its walls, and increasingly drawn to Stella's enigmatic brother, Sorrel sets to work. And though she knows her true home is across the sea with her sisters, instinct tells her that the English garden's destiny is entwined with her own, if she can only unravel its secrets...

I enjoyed it a lot. Great summer read with a little whimsy, a little mystery and a little romance. The characters were engaging, if a little bit unlikely, but it is fiction, after all. A quick read.

Really poor writing. I read it a couple of weeks ago - can't remember anything in particular, except it was disgusting, slow and the characters were very "cutesy". Good thing I didn't waste time reading "The Sparrow Sisters" as it seemed all was revealed in this book.

A quick, fun summer read.
