Blogger Book Club

Well, only one person emailed me about joining the book club but hopefully you will all read this book any way :)

The book for this month is... The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I stumbled on this book through Amazon. I really like this feature of "other people bought this" or "if you like this, you might like this" type thing. I don't have any affiliation with them, I just think it's cool. This book looks really interesting and it's been good so far! I started it Tuesday night and it's been a page turner so far!

Here is a short description of it. Check back at the end of the month for a little review and maybe some questions to answer if you want!

In 1913, a little girl arrives in Brisbane, Australia, and is taken in by a dockmaster and his wife. She doesn’t know her name, and the only clue to her identity is a book of fairy tales tucked inside a white suitcase. When the girl, called Nell, grows up, she starts to piece together bits of her story, but just as she’s on the verge of going to England to trace the mystery to its source, her grandaughter, Cassandra, is left in her care. When Nell dies, Cassandra finds herself the owner of a cottage in Cornwall, and makes the journey to England to finally solve the puzzle of Nell’s origins. Shifting back and forth over a span of nearly 100 years, this is a sprawling, old-fashioned novel, as well-cushioned as a Victorian country house, replete with family secrets, stories-within-stories, even a maze and a Dickensian rag-and-bone shop. All the pieces don’t quite mesh, but it’s a satisfying read overall, just the thing for readers who like multigenerational sagas with a touch of mystery.

If you want to purchase this book or read more reviews you can look here or go to any bookstore :)

Hope you all join in!
