Love this book - Molokai, by Alan Brennert, all about a little Hawaiian girl in a leper colony in Moloka'i in 1891. Gorgeous descriptive prose gives you a feel for Hawaii back when it was an island nation. This beautiful book totally touched my heart, was sad in some places, taught me a bit about Hawaii, and surprisingly, made me laugh in a couple of spots. Good book. ~~ Houston Foodlovers Book Club

Like Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved classic The Secret Garden, Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden takes root in your imagination and grows into something enchanting–from a little girl with no memories left alone on a ship to Australia, to a fog-soaked London river bend to a Cornish sea heaving against wind-whipped cliffs, crowned by an airless manor house where an overgrown hedge maze ends in the walled garden of a cottage left to rot.
All of Kate Morton's books are worth reading but I believe this one is the best!
Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. This book was VERY good. Highly recommend it. Good book club material too.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. One of my favorite books.
Discussed at the July 2013 meeting. An artist whose reputation has been tarnished stumbles on a piece of art that disappeared twenty-five years ago during the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist. She agrees to forge it for a gallery owner, until she realizes that the art she is forging may itself be a forgery.
Almost twenty-five years after the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum—still the largest unsolved art theft in history—one of the stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery.

The Art Forger is a one-of-a-kind. Three interwoven plots: a real-life unsolved art-heist, a struggling artist and her bad luck and poor decisions plus a fictional romantic link between Edgar Degas and a well-known art benefactress of the time. It's a thriller, historical novel and art book -- all in one.
The Art Forger: A Novel: B. A. Shapiro I love the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, am intrigued by the theft and therefore think this might be a good book!
The Art Forger: A Novel by B.A. Shapiro - Almost 25 years after an infamous art heist, one of the stolen Degas paintings is delivered to the Boston studio of a young artist. Claire Roth has entered into a Faustian bargain with a powerful gallery owner by agreeing to forge the Degas in exchange for a one-woman show in his gallery. But she starts to suspect that this long-missing masterpiece—the very one that had been hanging at the museum for 100 years—may itself be a forgery.
The Art Forger: A Novel: B. A. Shapiro- pretty good, worth reading. I learned a lot about art forgery but it fell short of excellent.
