To create the fabulous gardens
First published more than a decade ago, Earthly Joys, though carefully researched, does not have the powerful characters and grand passions of the recent Boleyn and Elizabeth I novels. It does have fascinating details of flora and fauna, a man who will follow his master no matter the consequences and a fascinating political and historical backdrop. Gregory fans will find, not a strong woman to admire, but a man whose passion for his work touches their minds. SWEET (Jun., 450 pp., $14.00)
