    I very rarely fail to finish a book, but I had to give up on this one about two thirds of the way in for the sake of my blood pressure On the face of it I should have loved it I love gardens, I love the Black Mountains and I dream of someday running away to livesustainably somewhere beautiful The start though was unpromising, involving the author explaining how he d never liked gar
