Editorial Reviews

Review

While the ostensible topics are houses and people, it is Nichols' love of gardening, and the villagers who either encourage him or thwart him in its pursuit, that remains the lively theme through all the books. -- Valerie Easton Seattle Times 20050916 At first glance, the book might appear sweet and a little cute, but don't be fooled. Nichols knows how to throw out a few zingers and reveal his true feelings with a good dose of sarcasm. Nichols is as observant as Jane Austen, as witty as Oscar Wilde, and as sentimental as James Herriott. He also happens to be as funny, timely, and un-P.C. as Jon Stewart. Home and Garden 20060101

Book Description

The third book in the Allways trilogy, A Village in a Valley is a delightful exploration of the village of Glatton---for which Allways is a pseudonym---and the people who lived and gardened there. Set in the English countryside, this hilarious memoir is as much about the author's love for plants, as it is about the village in which he lived.

Nichol's writing is humorous and sharp. His characters are well developed and hilarious. I own about 7 of his books and plan to buy more. These are the type of books you can read over and over again. Even if you are not a gardener I think you would enjoy the humor. Highly recommended.

This could rate 3 1/2 stars but there is no way to so designate. Having just read the MERRY HALL trilogy (which is fabulous) this was a bit of a disappointment. Well written but not as engaging or humorous and sometimes he's just writing to build up the word count -- or so it seems. The characterizations, the narrative and dialogue are good and so are the descriptions but his writing improved and deepened by MERRY HALL.

I am a keen gardener and had read all this books many years ago. So it was a nostalgic journey and lots of wonderful gardenning thoughts

This is the last of the Down the Garden Path series. This book has a bit of a plot, so it takes a different tack than the two earlier books. By focusing on the village, Nichols leaves his house and garden behind so this book lacks the intimate details and humor of the first two.
