The Forgotten Garden~A Book Review

As you come to the last chapter, you will be reluctant to continue reading. You will not want this story to come to an end. Actually; you will feel that way when reading any of Kate Morton's stories.

If you had told me that I would love a book written entirely in letter form, I would have laughed. But this story about the WW2 Channel Islands and their inhabitants' suffering and triumphs is one of the best stories I have ever read.
