The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton


Same captivating story told from three different points of view in different eras. The story of a young girl abandoned on a ship bound for Australia who is raised by another family until the night of her twenty-first birthday when the truth shatters her entire world. Traveling half-way around the globe to find answers, will Nell solve the mystery of her old life before it’s too late?


Because it is told from three points of view and three different time periods, you really have to watch the dates at the beginning of the chapters. The main question of the book can be figured out fairly quickly, but other questions pop up that compel you to keep reading. Beautiful and salacious. Totally recommended.

I was disappointed that the uncle never put his wife in her place. (Read the book to know what that means.)
