Here's your chance to win a copy of new historical novel The Choice by Tim Woodbridge, which reveals the gripping human drama behind the creation of one of England's most famous and iconic gardens.
Stourhead in Wiltshire is justly celebrated for its vast artificial lake, monuments and stunning beauty, attracting more than 400,000 visitors a year. The Choice is the moving story of the man who designed and built Stourhead in the 18th century, Henry Hoare II.
What had begun as an indulgence became an obsession as he struggled to come to terms with the deaths of all those close to him. His spirits broken, he chose to flood his garden to forget the past – but in doing so found he had created a place of such beauty that he was made whole again.
Written by the son of Stourhead's master historian, Kenneth Woodbridge, and based on substantial academic research, The Choice is a must-read for all gardening enthusiasts.
The Choice by Tim Woodbridge is out now priced £8.99 in paperback and £7.99 as a Kindle eBook. It is available on Amazon UK. Visit www.stourheadthechoice.co.uk
