Any additional comments?
Jennifer Morgan’s ‘Come to the Garden’ is an absolute, must read. Its storyline is not only gripping and compelling, but truly inspiring as well. The narrator is Jennifer Morgan herself, who discovers her beautiful guardian angel, Margaret, waiting for her in her own garden. The reader instantly becomes absorbed in the enthralling storyline as her angel takes Jennifer on a journey that involves looking back on many of her important life events. As one reads the novel, the reader really feels connected to the main characters and feels as though they are sitting right in the beautiful garden with them. The storyline is deep, beautiful, and shows incredible examples of God working in your life in ways you cannot even imagine (not to mention that the writing is amazing). I would give it more stars if I could.
I highly recommend this superlative work to anyone who has been looking for that one, special novel where they can feel like they are a part of the story and go on the journey with the characters. Thank you Mrs. Morgan for writing such an incredible book and I look forward to reading more of your work!
