Kate Sutton is all arms and legs. She possesses none of her sister Alicia’s honey-eyed beauty, but is intelligent and willful like her grandfather. It is an injustice, then, when Kate is falsely accused of Alicia’s wrongdoing and is banished to remote Elvenwood Hall. But the world Kate encounters in Derbyshire, England, is so strange and otherworldly that she has little time for regret. Elvenwood Hall has another, secret name - the Perilous Gard - and a mysterious history to go with it. It isn’t long before Kate has a hundred questions about her new home. Who are the Fairy Folk? What is Master John’s dark intent?

I've read this book 5 or 6 times now and it only gets better and better. There are so many nuances and depths to be discovered that it is like a bottomless well. The narration is so well done that it becomes transparent as it brings to life Katherine and Christopher and all the folk of the Gard and the Hill.

Once Leota's garden was a place of beauty - where flowers bloomed and hope thrived. It was her refuge from the deep wounds inflicted by a devastating war, her sanctuary where she knelt before a loving God and prayed for the children who couldn't understand her silent sacrifices. At 83, Leota is alone; her beloved garden is in ruins. All her efforts to reconcile with her adult children have been fruitless. She voices her despair to a loving Father, her only friend. And God brings a wind of change through unlikely means....

This is something that will get under your skin and change your life forever -for the better.

Written to lead into Celebrate Recovery, it is an easy read but by no means shallow. Don't read this if you can't get real with yourself.
