    Would you listen to The Forgotten Garden again? Why?

    I usually never re listen. I would know what will happen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nell. I admired her strength and yet her ability to do what was right especially with her granddaughter, Cassandra.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was very pleasant to listen too. and the sudle differences for the female voices was perfect.


    If you could rename The Forgotten Garden, what would you call it?

    I can't think of a more fitting title.
