The Gardener by Salley Vickers


The Gardener tells the story of two sisters Hassie, an artist, and Margot, working in finance. They use the money left to them by their dead father to buy a dilapidate­d Jacobean house on the Welsh marshes. Margot continues working in London, so Hassie is left alone to contend with the large house and its overgrown garden. She is recommende­d the help of gentle and discreet Murat, and they get to work reviving the place. This quiet allows her the chance to reflect on her previous life; her childhood, her romances and her grief. The Gardener is a real testament to nature, showing how it can nourish and give someone like Hassie the space to heal.
