As an historian I was familiar with the period, but not with John Tradescant the Elder. The development of his character truly brought him to life, and I could easily relate to him, being myself a keen gardener.
I enjoyed this book both as an examination of the period in which it is set, and as a thoroughly entertaining story. I enjoyed it so much that the further through I got, the more often I would set it on one side in order to extend the pleasure. Often, encouraged by the story, I would go into the garden and focus upon a task with all the enthusiasm of John Tradescant.
I heartily recommend this book.
The historical accuracy and details are woven into a delightful plot-line. I was so inspired by the book and its sequel "Virgin Earth" that I bought Tradescantia plants for my garden.
