I will say this first, I like Emily Dickinson's poetry. I think even if you didn't like her poetry and you are a gardener you would like this book. One reason is because the way the author, Marta McDowell, presented the poetry that goes with the information about Emily's gardening.
Marta being a gardener seemed to know how to express so many things that all gardeners love about gardening. Marta includes stories about Emilys gardening and shows how her poems reflect her thoughts about gardenings ups and downs.
I think this book would give you a weekend full of entertainment and maybe even some enlightenment about Emily and gardens in general.
I just happened upon this book through Timber Press. They didn't send me this book to review or anything of that nature. I was just so pleased with it I wanted to share it with you.
Have a great weekend.
