To pursue her dream of becoming an author, young Hanako abandons her home in Japan to journey to England. However, belittled and rejected by the publishing company of her favorite writer, she finds herself with nowhere to turn to—until she meets Alice Douglas, a noblewoman kind enough to take her in as a maid.

Hanako enjoys working as Alice's personal maid, and despite being in different social classes, the two gradually become close. One day, Alice offers to grant Hanako's deepest wish, but only under one condition—Hanako must kill her in return. Attempting to understand why she would so eagerly seek her death, Hanako learns that there is more to the noblewoman than meets the eye.

Sayonara Rose Garden was published in English as Goodbye, My Rose Garden by Seven Seas Entertainment from April 14, 2020 to December 15, 2020.

The positives are many and Sayonara Rose Garden was for sure a quality read for me. The romance progresses nicely and although we only have 17 chapters the not one relationship feels rushed. In fact the pacing is one of the greatest strengths of the manga because the story knows what it aims to achieve from chapter ...

This book read like poetry. I've learned a lot of new words, although I have already forgotten most of them. English is difficult.

As Hanako found herself losing confidence and helpless as she wasn't able to help her student, she found peace in reading, namely by Victor Franks. A bookworm she is, she decided to venture to London to meet her favourite author Franks — as well as she is trying to become a novelist herself, arriving at a publishing place, there, she finds herself encountering Alice, a noblewoman, that is also quite a bookworm like she is. As this fate meeting unfolded, Alice was fond ...
