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.
