The first extensive book on Irish gardens in a long time, this big weighty tome made me utterly homesick for my native land, and reminded me what makes Irish landscapes and gardens so unique." The English Garden

“A synchrony of text and images that should be the blueprint for future books of this kind. The author vividly brings the story of each garden’s creation to life… while her husband’s images [are] suffused with the light unique to Ireland."  Gardens Illustrated

"I’ve heard it said that this remarkable book was several years in the making, but I’d argue that it was several decades in the making, its craftsmanship the result of Powers’s long and distinguished career as a garden writer, including, for many years, for The Irish Times. She is known for her abiding love of nature, her incisive, forensic attention to detail, and her joy in the beauty of the written word." Fionnualla Fallon, Irish Times
