A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Anne Sinkler Whaley LeClercq has retired as the director of the Daniel Library at the Citadel. She holds a master's degree in librarianship from Emory University and a J.D. from the University of Tennessee.

"This is an inspiring and original tour of Europe's gardens. LeClercq has written an entertaining and well-researched book that describes not only some of our best gardens but adds useful information on surrounding countryside, where to stay and the history of her chosen gardens."—Rosamund Wallinger, author of Gertrude Jekyll's Lost Garden and owner of the world's finest restored Gertrude Jekyll gardens
"LeClercq gives us a feast for the senses as she and her intrepid husband explore a potpourri of the finest gardens in Western Europe, the British Isles, Ireland, and the eastern United States. Her descriptions are observant down to the smallest details. Full of history and anecdotes, this personal exploration of beautiful environments is full of inspiration, artistic perception, delight in nature, and joie de vivre."—Louisa Pringle Cameron, author of The Private Gardens of Charleston and The Secret Gardens of Charleston.
