Praise

“An absolutely charming story about the strength and beauty of female friendship. The Kew Gardens Girls blossom from the pages as WWI changes their lives and they face the challenges of being the first women to work in the famous Kew Gardens. I loved the way Ivy, Louisa and Win reveled in the many adventures they encountered and supported one another through the turmoil of wartime life. Settle into the story and be swept away!” ⁠—Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Secret

“Utterly charming, The Kew Garden Girls, set in World War I London to the backdrop of the women’s suffrage movement, is a tumbling bouquet of detail and dialogue that immediately transports the reader to one of the most famous city gardens in the world, a century in the past. Inspired by real events, Posy Lovell deftly explores issues of friendship, loss, class, equality, and freedom, weaving those serious topics into a beautiful story of women in wartime who find solace and meaning in tending the plants of Kew Gardens, coaxing new life from the soil even as they struggle to hold their own lives together. I’ll never look at the sprawling, brilliant Kew Gardens—one of London’s top tourist attractions and a World Heritage Site—the same way again.” —Kristin Harmel, international bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

The Kew Gardens Girls is a delightful story about women from very different backgrounds who end up working together at London’s Kew Gardens during WWI, taking on the jobs of the men who have gone to war. The ‘Girls’ form fast friendships and something like a surrogate family. With beautifully well-drawn characters that you root for from the beginning, and interesting historical details about both the Suffragette movement and Kew Gardens during WWI, this is a poignant, heartwarming read that I highly recommend!” —Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Beantown Girls
