A little magic, a little mystery in "The Forgotten Garden"

“The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton helps you remember the reasons you ever started reading in the first place.

I remember being a kid and hoping against hope that I would stumble across something; an object, a passageway, anything that would immerse me in an adventure, a mystery, the likes of which I had only read about. Cassandra, the heroine of “The Forgotten Garden” finds just that.

After her grandmother dies, Cassandra is handed an opportunity to solve the mystery of her Grandmother’s past. A tale that began in the early 1900’s, the story takes you back to Blackhurst manor, to a family secret, to a beautiful garden, and to a mystery that makes you feel like a child, stumbling across clue after clue, each one more exciting than the last.

Any avid, passionate reader knows that a good book can take you away. It can also make you believe that what you are reading will spill into your every day world. This book does a little of both. It gives you back that feeling of excitement you got when trying to dig up a mystery, and it also pulls you into a garden, once forgotten, now ready to spill it’s secrets.

I highly recommend this magical, mesmerizing tale for anyone that craves a good mystery, or just a good read in general.
