This semi-autobiographical book is about the life of a young English woman who marries an ageing German aristocrat and in the marriage she focuses on her garden and children, at the same time running a country house.

She also writes down her observations of the stuffy German aristocratic set using her razor sharp wit.

Von Arnim was a successful author in her time and deserves to be re-discovered, this novel is a gem. In the first year of publication this book was re-printed twenty times. Von Arnim wrote another 20 books that were all published.
