‘Cherry’ Ingram: The Englishman Who Saved Japan’s Blossoms by Abe Naoko

Review by Laurence Green

At once both a cracking story and a serious work of scholarly ambition, Naoko Abe’s account of Ingram’s life succeeds through virtue of being more than simple biography. It is a love letter to the joys that life can unveil when you find a passion and make it your own.
