Download The Knot ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Es start to worm their way up towards the light Here on the edge of the fertile wetlands that his new wife Frances fears so much Henry is accustomed to the peril of floodBut when the unexpected death of his father unleashes the malevolence of his stepmother Joan Young he is not prepared for this new threat that could destroy everything he has come to love. I enjoyed the vivid descriptions of Henry s garden and each season passing and the changes it brings It is a gently paced book though there is a sense of anticipation as the drama slowly builds Henry is utterly absorbed in the planning of his new garden and translating a book describing plants and their properties both refuges he creates for himself at time when his family suffer hardship and the rights to his property are under threat Despite the tranuility of the garden there is a sense of unease and signs that all is not well the blind widow whose presence unsettles Henry and his second wife s disinterest in the garden and her fear of the marshland around them Henry s character is convincingly portrayed while his view of the world and his academic ambitions stand out his contemporaries clearly do not share his views of disseminating knowledge to all A thoughtful lovely read I m looking forward to reading by this author

Download The Knot ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook From the author of the Orange New Writers shortlisted THE BOOK OF FIRES1565 Across Europe a new era of natural science is dawning In a remote damp corner of Somerset an unlikely pioneer is working to change the course of English botany Passionate private meticulous Henry Lyte has begun to neglect his other responsibilities in the pursuit of knowledge This. The blurb lead me to think this is the story of Frances but it isn t This is the story of the 16th century scholar and botanist Henry Lyte who translated a herbal from Dutch into English and who created a beautiful knot garden at his home in Somerset Frances is Henry s wife and she is a peripheral character I really enjoyed this gentle slow novel even though I have only the faintest interest in botany and herbal lore I liked Henry s humanity and kindness and humour he is a very real character For all that the book drifts along there are passages of real gut churning horror and i wept profusely at least twice If you are looking for a book to immerse yourself in that s beautifully written and meticulously researched I would recommend The Knot very highly
