Description: Nantucket gardener and novelist Laura Simon created a special world outside her home each year, nurturing seedlings and spreading compost in the spring, harvesting the fruits of her labors in the fall. Although surrounded by a bounty of flowers and vegetables, she felt something was missing, someone with whom she could share her love of the earth and her passion for gardening. Unable to find such a living person, she began a relationship with someone who had shared a fascination with the earth almost as great as her own, someone with whom she could share her reflections on seeds, soil, and flee natural world: beloved 18th-century statesman and avid horticulturist Thomas Jefferson.

Using selected passages from Jefferson's writings to complement her own observations, Simon has created an enchanting adventure through a year in her garden, filled with both history and humor. Appealing to both gardeners and history buffs by combining a tour of American horticultural history with a voyage through the seasons of a Nantucket garden, this imaginary correspondence on the history, lore, and love of the land is sure to become a classic in its genre.
