Multcolib My Librarian Heather: Virago Press
Annotation:On a rainy Sunday afternoon in January, Mrs. Palfrey, recently widowed, arrives at the Claremont Hotel where she will spend her remaining days. Her fellow residents are a mixed bunch, magnificently flawed and eccentric, living off crumbs of affection and an obsessive interest in the relentless round of hotel meals. Then one day, Mrs. Palfrey encounters the handsome young writer Ludo, and learns that even the old can fall in love.
Annotation:The progress of seasons is documented in diary form of the protagonist, Elizabeth, throughout the year. The changes in the garden reflecting the changes in relationship.
