I have been meaning to read this book for quite a long time.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. Somehow other books
rose to the top of the list, and this one sadly was forgotten.
Recently I read a friend's list of favorite books and I headed
to our Victoria Public Library and checked it out.
It's a wonderful historical novel beginning in London. The
year is 1913 and a very young girl is abandoned on a ship
headed for Australia. A husband and his wife take her into
their home in Australia and treat her as their own, yet she
is haunted by memories of her origins and a generational
search begins to uncover the truth from the few memories
and leads she possesses.
It's a good long read and I am happy for that because I am
totally immersed! I also checked out Kate's other novels,
Distant Hours and The House at Riverton. I will be happily
reading away for hours and hours and hours. If you have
not read The Forgotten Garden, I do recommend it
and hope you enjoy it if you do indeed check out a copy.
I also want to take this opportunity to remind you to please
support your local library. The library is a tremendous
resource for all ages and a cornerstone of every community.
Big Texas Hugs,
