And so Tom Berkeley's fate appears to have been sealed, as Gerald Potts decides that his new gardener cannot be trusted with the garden at Melthorpe Manor. A small legacy gives Anne Potts a chance to gain her independence from her overbearing husband; and she and Tom find happiness together through his love of plants and her need to carve out a life of her own.' 152pp. 22cm.
