I’m gratified to report that Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, and Library Journal gave A Garden of Marvels starred reviews.
Kirkus calls it “a delightful book––fun to read and share, no green thumb required.”
Publishers Weekly says: “Kassinger weaves a huge amount of information into what still feels like a personal memoir, and by the end of this effortless afternoon stroll with her, readers will be startled by how much they’ve learned.”
According to Library Journal: “Kassinger’s witty approach to a complex subject will win readers, but her really neat idea is to fit a personal quest for greater botanical knowledge within the larger historical development of the science.”
Booklist: “Kassinger has a knack for uncovering horticulture’s quirky side.”
