Book Review: The Lost Garden

The Lost Garden
By Katharine Swartz

Lonely and stagnating in a soulless job, Marin Ellis is in need of a new start - but she is not prepared for the one she is given. Her estranged father and his second wife die in a car accident, and Marin is made guardian of her half-sister Rebecca. 

The two are practically strangers. At Rebacca's pleading they move to the picturesque village of Goswell. When a door to a walled garden captures Rebecca's interest, Marin becomes determined to open it and discovers what lies behind the brambles. With the help of a local gardener Joss Fowler, they begin to uncover the garden's surprising secrets. In 1919, Eleanor Sanderson, daughter of Goswell's vicar, is grieving the loss of her beloved brother Walter. As winter passes into spring, her mood remains bleak. Her father decides to hire someone to help Eleanor restore the once beloved, but, now neglected vicarage gardens. Eleanor is enchanted by the new garden - and the gardener her father hires. A surprising - and unsuitable - friendship unfolds... 

Katharine Swartz lives in the Lake District with her husband, five children, and a Golden Retriever. The Lost Garden is the second book in Katharine's new series, Tales from Goswell. 

I'm always for a good fiction story. I love when I can be taken away from whatever I'm doing for a few hours, and be shoved into someone else's drama. I love the main characters, and the fantasy like setting. Very happy with reading this Katharine Swartz book for a past time. If you like Mercy's Rain or A Broken Kind of Beautiful The Lost Garden is a book to check out.
