About the Author:

Elizabeth von Armin grew up in England. During her first marriage, to Count Henning August von Arnim-Schlagenthin, she lived in Berlin and Pomerania, where she wrote the first of twenty-one novels. They had five children, who were tutored by E. M. Forster. After her husband's death, she moved to Switzerland, where she had a brief affair with H.G. Wells before marrying Francis, second Earl Russell, brother of Bertrand Russell. On the failure of her second marriage, Elizabeth ran away to America.



Wanda McCaddon (a.k.a. Nadia May or Donada Peters) has narrated well over six hundred titles for major audiobook publishers, has earned numerous Earphones Awards, and was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile magazine.

From AudioFile:

Rarely is there a book that when read once, one wishes to start rereading right away. Here is one. And here are the glories of perennials, bulbs, flowering trees, even annuals, and the joys of a new gardener who knows little but learns quickly. Elizabeth, who is the wife of Count Henning August von Arnim-Schlagenthin, "The Man of Wrath," mother to their three little girls, finds escape from her duties by becoming enthralled with her gardens. Witty and barbed, Elizabeth's memoir is read with elan and obvious relish by Nadia May. Both Elizabeth's subtle sarcasm and overwhelming pleasure at the beauties of the natural world are interpreted charmingly by May. One feels that a visit to Pomerania would be entertaining over and over again, but only if Elizabeth would be glad to have us as guests. B.H.B.
