I was utterly fascinated by this. It is an good as a trip to Europe and, too, it is precisely the book for anyone who thinks he has seen all there is to see in Europe. Who would expect to find the history and geography of Turin, a charming description of Grenable, a picture of King George V and Queen Mary at Chelsea, the Empress Josephine deep in her hobby, a wealth of biography, travel, horticulture and the most delightful bits of humor and information all tucked into a Rose Odyssey. It's there and you'll enjoy it, so will your customers. Perfect for a Bon Voyage or hostess gift.
