Summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Jane Borodale Jane Borodale ✓ 4 Read & Download The Knot Read & Download ↠ 4 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
