    It is 1970. "Bean" Holladay is 12 and her sister, Liz, is 15 when their artistic mother, Charlotte, a woman who flees every place she’s ever lived at the first sign of trouble," takes off to find herself." She leaves her girls enough money for food to last a month or two. But when Bean gets home from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz board a bus from California to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying antebellum mansion that’s been in the family for generations.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No--the plot is too predictable in many important regards.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Too pedestrian.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeannette Walls?

    I have read all of her other books--this is the first one to which I did not give 5 stars, but I am not sure I would try her next book after this disappointment.

    Where does The Forgotten Garden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book begins slowly and it is easy to think that it will be pedestrian, but just keep reading. It is one of the best books I have read this year. Excellent story line, good character development, and well-performed.
