The Forgotten Garden

The Forgotten Garden is a book that you can't stop reading but you don't want it to end. You get to know the characters and can feel the foggy Cornwall air. You will love this book and its characters. As soon as I finished The forgotten Garden I ordered 3 additional books by Kate Morton. During the pandemic this book carries you across the ocean where you walk with your new friends. Don't miss it.

love the title

kept you wanting to know what happens next and entertwining the years back and forth so you would know what was going on and at the end it finally all comes together with a surpise ending

Simplistic, typical romance story. Can we have a heroine who does not have red hair and green eyes?

A great read! A couple of wet afternoons and it was finished. Thoroughly recommend.

At first, the jumping back and forth in time to tell the stories of multiple charachters drove me a little bit crazy. But it didn't take very many chapters to start feeling pulled in by the complexity of the story. The characters were vivid and well-drawn and human. And I liked the brief cameo by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

My only complaint with the story is that I figured out enough by about 2/3 of the way through that I wasn't really surprised by anything at the conclusion. Some of the details of what I thought would occur were different, and some things I wanted to have happen didn't, and certain characters were either more or less menacing than I expected. Despite that, I enjoyed getting there. Kate Morton is a very talented writer, and she made the story enjoyable to the end.
