“Salley Vickers sees with a clear eye and writes with a light hand. She’s a presence worth cherishing,” Philip Pullman.
Salley Vickers’ The Gardener is a charming new novel about two very different sisters who buy a ramshackle cottage together. When the sisters hire Murat, who has recently arrived in Hope Wenlock from Albania, to be their gardener, they unwittingly unleash tensions in the quiet English village they have begun to call home. The Gardener is a beautifully observed tale of sisterhood, secrets, belonging and new beginnings, from the best-selling author of The Librarian.
“No one can dig down into the shrouded recesses of the human heart quite as forensically as Vickers,” The Sunday Times.
