Doris Wolters liest: Elizabeth von Arnim "Elizabeth und ihr Garten" by Elizabeth Von Arnim( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der Gärtner ist seit einem Jahr hier und hat mir regelmäßig gekündigt, bis jetzt ist er aber zum Bleiben bewegt worden. Ich glaube nicht, daß er viel vom Gärtnern versteht, zumindest aber kann er graben und gießen." Also muß Elizabeth selbst Hand anlegen und den verwilderten Garten auf dem Landgut ihres Mannes in Schuß bringen. Der Zauber der Natur wird für sie zum Lebenselixier. Mit spitzer Feder und britischem Humor beschreibt die junge Frau alle Eindringlinge in ihr Idyll: den "Grimmigen" (ihren Mann), eine "beste" Freundin mit ihren "guten" Ratschlägen und eine Engländerin, die offenbar gar nichts nach Hause zieht
