The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley, review

1 Comment

I really enjoyed THE ROSE GARDEN BY SUSANNA KEARSLEY.  It’s the first book I’ve read by the author and I will definitely see what she has to offer in the future.

As the story begins, Eva loses her sister and take her ashes to a place in England that her sister loved so she can put the ashes there.  A pretty story, right?  Right. But then add time travel into the mix, along with romance, adventure, etc, and you have an exciting love story!  Plus, there was quite a bit of history included and, in fact, I enjoyed the parts of the story set in the 18th century better than the ones in modern day.  Call me a sucker for adventure.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot – I hate when I go to read a review and get a retelling of the book (Pet peeve).  I must say I like Susanna’s writing style.  It’s easy to read – not too flowery – and therefore, flows nicely.  That’s not to say it wasn’t descriptive.  It was.  I could envision myself in those places and that, for me, is a must.  (Plus, isn’t the cover gorgeous??!!)

Thanks to Sourcebooks for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
