The daisy chain by Al Campbell, his first book. Wow, I absolutely loved it from start to finish. It was one of those books that you want to finish, but don’t want it to end, and just wanted to know what happened in the end.. it’s a great read, if you like gardening, interested in art, plants and history then this book comes highly recommended.. can’t wait for the next book..

Al the wordsmith has created a landscape that transports us through time and place, a triumph for the craft of the genius. The style and dialogue make it easily accessible and unputdownable, although I did not want it to end.

A visual experience where every scene is alive with colour and vitality. It’s a rare treat to read a book about all of my favourite things – art, gardens, history, adventure and of course a sprinkling of romance. A satisfying, feel-good read.

A really enjoyable romantic historical novel about the slave trade triangle in which the strongest characters are the nicely drawn female leads of both races. There is great dialogue, I was amused by the cameo appearances of Capability Brown, Gainsborough, Captain Cook etc., and the style of writing is interestingly visual.

I absolutely loved The Daisy Chain which wasn’t at all what I was expecting. Part romance, part history book, part spy thriller, this charming page-turner ticks all my boxes! Swirling from the beauty of Kew Gardens to the opulence of the Queen’s chambers, to the dark underworld of Georgian England, the story kept me gripped throughout and the wonderfully drawn characters will stay with me. Blooming marvellous!
