Here are some lovely things 

people have said about Love From Kew

 

“I adore this book, which captures the magic of Kew and tells the stories of people who share my true love for the Gardens.”


Dame Judi Dench

 


​​“A gem of a book, combining a love of Kew Gardens with slices of everyday life, tied together with a ribbon of poetic storytelling. I loved it.”

Tracy Chevalier

 

“Postcards were the social media of Victorian and pre-digital Britain. Short messages penned at the time show how Britain’s premier garden lifted spirits and calmed anxieties during those often rare occasions when  ordinary people were able to escape the daily job or relentless domestic duties. Kew remains an oasis of tranquillity in an increasingly frantic world.”

Francis Pryor

 

"Sophie’s rich and often wonderfully unexpected imagery makes this a delightful way to learn more about the Gardens’ history."

Lisa Woollett
