This is a heartfelt memoir about love, the garden, and Charles in Wachsberger’s voice. After giving up his New York art and set-design business, Wachsberger moved into a 300-year-old cottage on a third of an acre in Orient, Long Island, where he built a garden that was appropriate to his historical home. Then remarkable circumstances led him to Charles, who was a connoisseur of art, a gardener, and the man who became his life partner. Together they created a garden of sensuous wild beauty.
