Of the Kate Morton books I have read so far, this is by far the very best one. It’s not predictable and the armchair traveling in this took me to Cornwall and London England, Sydney Australia and New York City. As with her books The Lake House and The Secret Keeper, The Forgotten Garden is a mystery that comes together like a jigsaw puzzle via the personal stories of several different characters, across multiple time periods and continents. Deeply immersive and compelling, Morton draws the reader into a dense, intricate, atmospheric world that kept me reading to the very last page.

This is the second of Kate Morton's books that I have read and I must have more! I savored every, single page of this book. Would it be presumptuous of me to say that perhaps this is the best book I have ever read? I'm not sure, but it surely comes close. The story is mysterious, interesting and provoking. I could perhaps predict what may happen next but I would be wrong. Morton’s beautifully descriptive writing brings the past to life as it has in her other books. But also like her other books, the story follows the same formula. A present-day narrator discovering a mystery in her family’s past and attempting to solve it.

By (author) Kate Morton, Read by Caroline Le. The Daily Express "The Forgotten Garden weaves its powerful spell slowly and beautifully.

Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza Makepeace Rutherford - the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the early 20th century - as well as a cliff-top cottage on the other side of the world, Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell, on a quest to find out the truth about their.

Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her. But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra’s life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her family. Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza Makepeace Rutherford―the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the early twentieth century―as well as a cliff-top cottage on the other side of the world, Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell, on a quest to find out the truth about their history, their family and their past; little knowing that in the process, she will also discover a new life for herself.

"A stunning must-read story that’s set for stardom" ―Woman’s Day magazine

This is a solid book. It can be hard these days to find a novel that isn't predictable or derivative of another work. I truly enjoy novels that can surprise and shock me. This was one of them. I've had this book for about 5 years, now, and I've read it 3 times. I also recommended it to my Mother-in-Law who listened to the audiobook.

The first time I read it, I stayed up the better part of two nights to finish it! Ha, I just couldn't put it down! I really wanted to see what was going to happen next, and the author did a great job of keeping me in the dark! There were a few things that I caught early, but some not until they were written right out!

I loved the fairy-tales that were included with this novel! I can't believe she wrote those! They were completely unexpected, super magical, and allowed you to dive deeper into certain characters and understand their reasonings and motivations. Such a unique and awesome idea.

I don't want to give anything from the plot away, as I personally hate when reviews do that! I will say that I've lent it out to friends, and reccomended it as well. I look forward to a couple of years from now when I "forget" enough and it will be a fresh read again. It gets better every time.

I enjoyed the book but, as other readers have noted, it was confusing at times with the back and forth between time periods. Several times I thought I had the mystery all figured out but didn't get it right until the very end. That's a good mystery! Good characterizations that were well fleshed out. I'd recommend this book and plan to read more by Kate Morton.

I enjoyed The Forgotten Garden. Morton’s beautifully descriptive writing brings the past to life as it has in her other books. But also like her other books, the story follows the same formula. A present-day narrator discovering a mystery in her family’s past and attempting to solve it. This version wasn’t quite as successful because the narrators’ voices were very similar. I enjoyed Eliza’s portions of the story more than Nell’s and felt that Cassandra and Rose’s portions were a little lackluster in comparison. Though it is a bit rambling in places and I felt the ending was predictable, it was an entertaining read.

What a decadent, delicious read! This is the second of Kate Morton's books that I have read and I must have more!

I savored every, single page of this book. Would it be presumptuous of me to say that perhaps this is the best book I have ever read? I'm not sure, but it surely comes close.

The story is mysterious, interesting and provoking. I could perhaps predict what may happen next but I would be wrong. 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 ... she uncovered the clues so deliciously that it felt good and right. Don't worry ... you will feel the sensation of validation and I certainly did. Really ... so delicious!

The characters in this story were vivid, wonderful and very believable. I wanted to hate the oppressors! They were mean, vindictive, cruel, self-serving and completely without morals. How could you not love a character like that who's sole purpose was to enrich a story?! And yet, I could feel sympathy for them because they were conditioned by their environments and could only behave the way they were trained to do so.

There were endearing characters in this story that you can fall in love with only to have your heart ripped out because of the circumstances that uncovered flaw and destiny. I rejoiced with them, fell in love with them, savored their innocence and understood that life's circumstances invite one to measure up, take charge or coward and withdraw in the anguish. You will always be invited to root for the underprivileged.

Oh yes, a juicy read that enriches the readers life and the tickle of intimacy and creativity that invites the reader to acknowledge a longing for a life of adventure and mystery. Yes ... a little bit of history laced in the pages of this book that elude to a time long ago and happenings that the reader may not have been present for but could only imagine.

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. Definitely ... a must read!

Well, Ms. Morton, you are, indeed, a storyteller! I've read the Lake House and now this book, and I loved both stories! I enjoy the way two very different centuries are woven together to tell this tale, and the characters are full and real.....I, as you can tell, am NOT a professional reviewer, just a book addict who wants to say thank you for sharing your talent!
