Margaret Babcock is a joyously unassuming and unusual young woman. A horticulturist whose fingers are constantly itching to turn the soil and make the food that will enhance and sustain her grand experiment--to produce a rose that will survive the English climate and bloom more than once. She is continuing the work begun by her beloved mother. Margaret shares her work and insights with her particular friend Dr. Rhys Gray.
Neither seems to think it unusual that they exchange letters weekly and sometimes three times within that space.
Rhys is overjoyed that Margaret will be coming to London for a meeting with the society, but he'd forgotten the family problems that he is being counted on to solve.
Those problems squarely interrupt Rhys' plans for his and Margaret's amusement but family has a way of knocking one off a set course. Rhys and Margaret find themselves in difficult situations. With their unspoken attraction for each other, and a possible fiancé in the background Rhys finds himself in more than one unlooked for and decidedly challenging position.
This is one of those romance novels that shines light into awkward and endearing quarters! Intelligently written, witty and immensely enjoyable!
