Author of Rosemary Verey: The Life & Lessons of a Legendary Gardener

During a sabbatical from a New York law firm, where she was the first woman partner, Barbara Paul Robinson worked as a gardener for Rosemary Verey at Barnsley house, in the Cotswolds of England. She credits this life transforming experience with soon thereafter becoming the first woman president of the New York City Bar. She has written the first and, so far, only biography of the great English gardener. Rosemary Verey: The Life & Lessons of a Legendary Gardener (David R. Godine, 2012) was greeted by enthusiastic reviews, including one by Michael Dirda in the Washington Post, where he called the book an "irresistible biography".
