Marie Annette Beauchamp / Elizabeth von ArnimFrom 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.
