The Forgotten Garden
by Kate Morton
Loved this book, so many twists and turns.
It turned out to be a pretty intriguing muti-layered story that
completely pulled me in. It keeps you guessing throughout!
It challenged my mind with all the different character's and
jumping back and forth between time periods.
It's a wonderful book of historical fiction,
a family saga that travels back and forth through generations.
It begins with a little girl abandoned on a ship thats headed for Australia in 1913...
from there the mystery and secrets are what keeps the pages turning,
the story takes hold of your imagination and won't let go.
I must warn you that it takes some perseverance and time to get into this book, with such complicated characters and the movement back and forth between era's, but it's well worth it in the end! I'm glad I stuck with it, and actually for me it wasn't that hard. I will be reading it again, this time, familiarized with the characters and the connections they have with each other, and there will be that one point in the book that probably wont take my breath away and cause a tear or two, because I already know....and wont be taken by surprise.
