"There is a hidden garden bordering the grounds of Jane Steward's book-themed resort--a garden filled with beautiful but deadly plants such as mandrake and nightshade. Tucked away behind ivy-covered walls and accessible only through a single locked door--as described in the pages of Frances Hodges Burnett's classic novel--the garden is of special interest to Jane's current group of guests, The Medieval Herbalists. But when one of them turns up dead, Jane must discover whether a member of the group has come to Storyton Hall to celebrate their passion for plant lore or to implement a particularly cruel means for murder"--Page 4 of cover.
