Book Review - The Forgotten Garden

The Forgotten Garden
By Kate Morton
The Forgotten Garden is a beautifully written book, a must read for anyone who loves fairytales. Like all fairytales it includes a beautiful castle, a few Princesses, an evil Queen, a kindly village couple, an Ogre and of course a handsome Prince. In 1913 a tiny girl is left alone on a ship that is sailing to Australia and so begins a story that will take us through many years as Nell searches for her true identity. Nell has in her possession a lovely book of fairy tales written by the lady she only knows as the authoress. This book will eventually lead her on a great adventure in Cornwall and years later her granddaughter Cassandra to the truth. The Forgotten Garden shows us the damage that can come from secrets and also how love and faith can show us the way.
