What a wonderful story of family, history, mystery and relationships. One of my favorite books in a long time.
I haven't read it but the audio addition was fantastic
Jane Eyre as it takes many twists and turns and reveals family secrets along the way
The lost girl
I enjoyed this thoroughly it was an intriguing and addictive listen
Mystery, beautiful garden, fairy tale.
I love where you get to find out how Eliza's stories reflect her life.
Eliza Makepeace. She was so interesting and I would love to hear her stories.
I hated the music in between the chapters. Other than that I loved every thing about it!
Ms Morton's The Forgotten Garden is such an intriguing tale, that it haunts me still, long after the final chapter is done. Mystery, murder, loss, love told with a flow that spans the years and takes the reader on a roller coaster ride from Australia to England.
Performed with consummate drama and flair and by narrator Caroline Lee.
Similar story pattern to HOUSE AT RIVERTON, but I loved RIVERTON so I liked this one too. Lots of twists and turns, some predictable. Kate Morton weaves a great tale and paints a beautiful picture with her prose. The whole thing was a little sad, and I wish Eliza didn't give up so much for Rose. She certainly didn't deserve it.
I usually listen to thrillers but decided to change my pace and was well rewarded.
When I found out who Nell's mother was.
I fell in love with so many of the characters, its hard to choose a single scene.
Eliza with the way she touched so many lives.
I was a little skeptical when I first downloaded this novel but have thoroughly enjoyed it. The mystery of Nell's past kept me listening longer than I should have at times:o)
Yes!!!! So engaging!!!!
All the different time periods. Not hard to follow!
Worth a credit plus!!!!!
I'm an avid listener. Audio books are a mini-vacation for me. They fill my "need to read" when I don't have time - which is most of the time. Great element of multi-tasking!
This is my first exposure to the work of Kate Morton, and what a find! A sweeping, multi-generational tale of love, envy, loss, etc: all the things you expect in a big family saga. BUT...the plot twists, character development and cross-era delivery kept me in constant anticipation of the next revelation - for more than 20 hours! The story turns came right up until the very last moment. When not listening, I was thinking about the story and the characters and looking forward to the next "listen." Caroline Lee does a great job with all the British accents, a fair job with the Australian ones, but is a bit hopeless with American dialects. Not important enough to deter any listener.
All in all, one of the most satisfying experiences ever in listening.
