“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
“[Martyn] uses gardens as a lens through which to view history, offering an enlightening perspective on Elizabeth’s reign. . . . A charming mix of gardening history and biography, related with evocative prose, this will delight those interested in gardening history, Queen Elizabeth’s life, or Elizabethan history.” —Library Journal
