This is the second book I have listened too of Kate Morton's. The Shifting Fog was the first book, which was great, however The Forgotten Garden was even better.
The Narrator Caroline Lee just makes the book come alive.
Can definitely highly recommend this book!
Wow,, what an enthralling story. Well written and the narration is very well done. I thought at the first time that she starts that time change that it was going to be hard to keep track of all the coming and going of the different story lines, but Miss Morton was able to transition effortlessly,and the story line was easy to follow.I really enjoyed this book
A lovely long read of finding who you are through your family history. The same story told through three generations giving you glimpses from the early 1900's, mid 70's and 2005.
Say something about yourself!
A definite Keeper.Well done.Kept me engaged and interested.I will be listening to this again and again.
Back and forth among generations, but the story gets woven together very masterfully. Would be perfect to listen to on a commute, like a soap opera.
This story could have been told in less than half the time. Way too much rambling and repetition going on in this story. A good light historical novel that could have used some really serious editing. I had to force myself to finish it. Gave it three stars because I liked the narrator.
I found myself finding every excuse I could to continue listening to this book. Interesting concept, great narration and a satisfying ending. Now, I am just sorry it is finished.
I simply loved this book. Page one grabbed me so hard I actually thought I felt it.
Every character was so beautifully drawn I can see them all in my mind.
I almost hope they don't make a movie of it which could spoil my images.
The garden, the coastline, the black rock, the house, the cottage, I have to keep
reminding myself that I have never actually seen these places!
Oh reader, enjoy.
