This is almost a very good fictionized vocational book, but it doesn't quite come off. However, it deals with a subject not -- to my knowledge -- hitherto handled in fiction, horticulture and running a greenhouse. Somewhat far- fetched but fairly entertaining, once it gets beyond the stereotyped opening scene in which the family lawyer explains to the spoiled darlings of the rich, that there is no money left and they must shift for themselves. The two in question have inherited a greenhouse -- and a fight -- so determine to save the greenhouse and win the fight. A bit of romance on the side -- and a good deal of flower culture and the business of it all.
