1857: On an extended visit to her cousins in London, country girl Lizzie struggles to adapt to her new life of stiff manners and formal pastimes at No. 6 Chelsea Walk. And her dream of becoming a gardener is certainly frowned upon. But like her elder cousin, who wants to defy her middle-class upbringing and become a nurse, Lizzie has the strength of will to act against stifling Victorian conventions. And the chance to visit the newly opened Kew Gardens presents her with the ideal opportunity to start working towards her grand ambition... Adele Geras has previously been shortlisted for the Whitbread Children’s Book Award and Highly Commended for the Carnegie Medal.
