Never has there been a more accurate title than that of this audiobook. Indeed, the story, first published in 1898, is all about Elizabeth, a woman of means with unparalleled devotion to the flowers she nurtures outside her door. Lucy Scott is an excellent narrator for this work as she appears to relish the extensive lists of plantings and the vivid emotions attached to each. Her voice is clear and enthusiastic, with distinct tones for the few human characters populating Elizabeth's world. The energy Scott brings to the audiobook plays a key role in keeping the listener engaged since the text is largely descriptive and offers little in the way of plot. Still, there is something soothing about imagining Elizabeth's tea roses, sundial, and sweet peas in their glory. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
