It's more of a montage of nature scenes with the thin thread of a story line that I could hardly pay attention to. I imagine the book was better, it was a bestseller in its day?, but I'd choose a National Geographic documentary over this next time.

I wasn't familiar with Edith Holden or her Nature Notes book and was more interested in the Edwardian aspects. These focus on her nature walks and sketches through the year 1906. Beautiful scenery. What there is of her life is not terribly interesting because she is mostly alone walking through the woods. It gives a bit of how she lived growing up but her family struggles and squabbles are not very interesting. Overall, this is best for nature artists and not for those interested seeing more of the Edwardian lifestyle.

Quiet, with some lovely aspects.
