Where Lilacs Still Bloom by Jane Kirkpatrick, 2012

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2012-10-01

bookHulda Klager (1863-1960) was a Pacific Northwest pioneer. This Woodland, Washington farm wife survived numerous hardships, but is best remembered for the wonderful collection of lilacs she hybridized and introduced in the first half of the 20th century, and the garden now open to the public that displays those lilacs. The historical novel "Where Lilacs Still Bloom" by Jane Kirkpatrick is largely an accurate biography, with only minor liberties taken to amalgamate some of the real life personalities in Klager's life.

Excerpted from the Fall 2012 Arboretum Bulletin.
