    It’s November 2004. Barrett Meeks, having lost love yet again, is walking through Central Park when he is inspired to look up at the sky; there he sees a pale, translucent light that seems to regard him in a distinctly godlike way. Barrett doesn’t believe in visions - or in God - but he can’t deny what he’s seen. At the same time, in the not-quite-gentrified Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, Tyler, Barrett’s older brother, a struggling musician, is trying - and failing - to write a wedding song for Beth, his wife-to-be, who is seriously ill.

    Acclaimed author Susanna Kearsley's previous works have won the RT Book Reviews Reviewers Choice Award, and finaled for both the UK Romantic Novel of the Year and the RITA awards.

    Eva Ward is a modern woman thrown back three centuries to 1715 - only to find that might be exactly where she belongs. There, she finds true love with Daniel Butler, but the discord surrounding Hanoverian King George plunges the lovers into a world of intrigue, treason, and romance.

    Angel Claire says: "Amazing story."

    If you could sum up The Rose Garden in three words, what would they be?

    Great Story Telling


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Fergel. This character had a wonderful personality that jumped off the audiobook "pages".


    What does Nicola Barber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotion and personality of each character


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    3 steps backwards is sometimes better than 1 step forward


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Susanna Kearsley writes more novels soon
