"A Hundred Days" - a botanical novel is a gorgeous paperback with 100 pen and ink illustrations. It was written by Julie Emerson on Mayne Island. This book is an appreciation of our island life and a wonderful reference for any gardener.
In this novel, Rosemary lives on a Gulf Island from the end of May until Labour Day. Every day she chooses a different flower or herb in history and mythology, from Day 1: Peony to Day 100: Pearly Everlasting. She records her observations of each local flower and herb as well as her experiences one summer on the island.
Julie Emerson will give a reading from "A Hundred Days", with local comments, and sign books.
