This book really took me by suprise. It is a soft love story that takes place, in of course, a garden. Princess Adela
is not the kind of Princess most people want her to be, she would rather spend time in the soil than in her duties. When her closest friend, the gardener, Garth, she comes along and discovers a couple secrets considering their hostess, Lady Hortensia. Let's just say, don't judge a flower by it's cover. After Adela manages to escape, she can't seem to stop thinking about the black bird, whom she restored to his human form. Equally odd, he feels the same way. THis novel is a good read that is a mystery, an adventure, and a soft love story.
