The protagonist is Nell around who the whole myste I found this as engrossing as her debut which I read earlier this year. She lives with her family in London and Australia. There was only one detail in this book that I thought to know before the reader will have found out but somehow, I believe that Kate wanted it that way and even though I knew. Made me really wish to have or create an unspoiled secret garden with roots to my own past. On the one hand, I loved and devoured the last three hundred pages of this book. Medo de não conseguir ler e arrastar a leitura eternamente.
A beautifully written and satisfying novel. Toward the end I was able to guess the main mysteries of the book, but at least they didn't come out of left field. . For one thing, this book should have been half its length - so many and not particularly beautiful descriptions, detailed rendering of unimportant gestures and unnecessary talk. I think the style of writing was superbly done, not often can I say that. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The lady she calls the Authoress having mysteriously disappeared instead of looking after her as promised.
However, the thing that made me keep reading were two young girls whom we don't really encounter until halfway through the book. Respectful story-specific reference to sex. The story hinted at deep, dark secrets, but there weren't rea Oh for goodness sake. I don't want to give anything from the plot away, as I personally hate when reviews do that! Is The Forgotten Garden a love story? Even the simplest details are there for a reason. Sound like it's going to be confusing, right?

Morton jumps from time period to time period, country to country, character to character in a flawless manner. The story twists and turns, making the secrets seem unresolvable.

She wandered through the kitchen, past the spinning wheel and into the little sitting room at the very front. She gradually strips away layers of mystery, leaving a nice twist to the end. Also, the final twist of the story was likely not a twist for many readers - if you have been paying attention, it's fairly obvious.

Indeed, this is a book of escape where one can savor the tastes of a fine meal where the flavors dance on the tongue and travel to the stomach only to nourish the body that seeks meaning and purpose. I found this as engrossing as her debut which I read earlier this year. My only regret: that Eliza's book of fairy tales isn't a real book.
Está lleno de misterio y secretos. Cassandra was okay, but had no real depth except that one tragic event, so I wasn't that much consumed in her life. The Forgotten Garden This has to be one of the most enjoyable books I have read. However, as she is barren, she urges Eliza and Nathan to have sex in order for Eliza to carry her baby.
