Summary The Knot

Jane Borodale Ü 6 Read Read & Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ü Jane Borodale Summary The Knot From the author of the Orange New Writers shortlisted THE BOOK OF FIRES1565 Across Europe a new era of natural science is dawning In a remote damp corner of Somerset an unlikely pioneer is working to change the course of English botany Passionate private meticulous Henry Lyte has begun to neglect his other responsibilities in the pursuit of knowledge This. The main problem I had with this book was the blurb on front and back It is a meticulously researched and thoughtful fictionalisation of the life of Henry Lyte who translated a book on herbs in the 16th century At the start of the book he has just married his second wife and brings her from London to live on his remote estate where he is establishing an unconventional garden The garden and his potentially useful translation are his obsessions Years pass children are born and die the book makes slow progress From the blurb I got the impression All seasons pass and what lasts is love that the book would be about his tricky relationship with his wife her concerns over the death of her predecessor and the danger that his obsession with plants would ruin his human relationships This is not really accurate and my warped expectations seriously impeded my ability to accept the book and the Lytes marriage on their own terms Their apparent inability to talk to each other while leading to a moving scene after the death of their son grated as did the lack of real empathy by anyone including the author for the wife Most of the book is about the progress of plants and Henry s thoughtful but not always scintillating ponderings on life in the countryside The prose is lyrical and evocative but the main characters tend to talk in the same style which is a bit annoying

Was surprised to see the back story of a house I drive past on the way to the West Country Henry Lyte was a botanist who translated a french herbal to make the contents available to the people those who could read in Elizabethan England Lots of detail of life on the Somerset Levels and the garden at Lytes Carey of which sadly there is nothing remaining This is the story of the man driven by his translation whilst bringing up a number of children fighting action by his step mother to keep control of the family home as well as his own demons At times I felt floundering in detail but the chapters vary in length with details of a herb at the beginning of each so it was easy to break it up In addition to the naturalist element there were references to religion and the monarchy and the lives of those living in less salubrious accommodation Even the Lyte family had only a tentative hold on life itself Loved the character of the gardener who knew his stuff I do like Borodale s easy style
