A review by filoschira
The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton


A very special story, written in the most complete style. Everything begins with a tale, and with tales is sprinkled the novel. Nice tales indeed, that illustrate and are a part of the mystery. Not too sentimental, the story takes place in places so well described you feel transported there.
The characters too are really well portrayed and you come to like some, dislike others, feel the distance they build.
The mystery is well kept, and although at some point you can imagine part of it, you need to unravel it entirely with the heroine and discover why.
And finally, something I love when I close a book, it makes you think.
About life in those days, family conections, sacrifice, resentment, about what you understand of this story.
