My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Just arrived from Russian Federation through Bookmooch.
I cannot believe that this is the first book written by Cronin I’ve ever read.
The description of the relationship between father and son is dramatically told where the character of a Spanish gardener plays an important role into the story.
There is a movie version The Spanish Gardener (1956) based on this book, where Dick Bogarde plays the role of the gardener.
