Despite the format that Kate Morton chose to write this story, once I got into it, I have to say I truly enjoyed it. She kept me wondering what Nell’s background really was and why it was kept such a secret and why someone would take her away as they did. I was very intrigued by the garden and the maze. Can’t imagine living with such a romantic and enchanting garden in my own backyard.
This Mother’s Day my husband and I went to Sycamore Hills Garden in Marcellus, NY. For a little while I felt like I was at Blackhurst Manor in Eliza’s garden and maze (we got lost in the maze at Sagamore and couldn’t find our way to the center). It was magical! Hope you enjoy The Forgotten Garden as much as I did.
