This months book we are reading is The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.
A foundling, an old book
of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family, a love
denied, and a mystery. The Forgotten Garden is a captivating,
atmospheric and compulsively readable story of the past, secrets, family
and memory from the international best-selling author Kate Morton.
Cassandra is lost, alone and grieving. Her much loved grandmother,
Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic
accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost everything dear to her.
But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra's
life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew
about herself and her family.
Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza
Makepeace - the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the
early twentieth century - Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to
follow in the footsteps of Nell on a quest to find out the truth about
their history, their family and their past; little knowing that in the
process, she will also discover a new life for herself.
