"A series of letters from one Wilfird Sharp to his goddaughter, Flora, ill in an Edinburgh hospital ... We are presented little by little with a composite picture of life in a village with all its agreeably eccentric characters ... But the most striking aspect of the book, and the one closest to the author's heart, is the description of the garden which Sharp takes over in a hideously neglected condition and gradually converts into a thing of beauty."--Dust jacket.
