The Forgotten Garden

I just finished a great book.  The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.  It was the perfect summer read for me.  It was a little lengthy, but I was hooked from the first paragraph, so it didn’t seem long at all.

It spans 3 generations of women in the same family and has a nice spooky twist that I loved.  There are fairy tales, betrayals, murder and spooky old English estates with complex gardens and mazes.

Here’s the basis:  A 4-yr old girl is found abandoned on a ship going from London to Australia in 1913.  No one knows anything about her and she’s not giving any information about herself at all. Thus begins the mystery of this novel, that intertwines these 3 women together forever.

It was fantastic and is definitely a book that I will read again along with other books by Kate Morton, as I really loved her writing style.

    Sounds interesting. Once I finish the sets I am reading (need to find the last 2 in one before I begin the other) I may have to check it out.
    Have an awesome day!
