Earthly Joys Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA Today) Philippa Gregory brings to life the passionate, turbulent times of 17th-century England as seen through the eyes of the country’s most famous royal gardener.

John Tradescant’s fame and skill as a gardener are unsurpassed in 17th-century England, but it is his clear-sighted honesty and loyalty that make him an invaluable servant. As an informal confidant of Sir Robert Cecil, adviser to King James I, he witnesses the making of history, from the Gunpowder Plot to the accession of King Charles I and the growing animosity between Parliament and court. 

Tradescant’s talents soon come to the attention of the most powerful man in the country, the irresistible Duke of Buckingham, the lover of King Charles I. Tradescant has always been faithful to his masters, but Buckingham is unlike any he has ever known: flamboyant, outrageously charming, and utterly reckless. Every certainty upon which Tradescant has based his life - his love of his wife and children, his passion for his work, his loyalty to his country - is shattered as he follows Buckingham to court, to war, and to the forbidden territories of human love.
