The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley (1)

Well, here we go!!!!!!!

This is a novel by a Canadian writer that I have never read before. It was suggested by a librarian in the Stratford Public Library for one of our reading challenges for the summer. Thank you so much for suggesting this book!

When Eva’s film star sister Katrina dies, she leaves California and returns to Cornwall where they spent their childhood summers. This time, the trip wasn’t for fun and enjoyment. It was to scatter Katrina’s ashes and in doing so return her to the place where she belongs.

But Eva must also confront the ghosts from her own past in coming back. The house where she so often stayed as a child is home not only to her old friends the Halletts, but also to the people who lived there in the eighteenth century.

When Eva finally accepts that she is able to skip between centuries and see and talk to the inhabitants from hundreds of years ago, she soon finds herself falling for Daniel Butler, a man who lived long before she herself was born.

After a while, Eva begins to question her place in the present, and in laying her sister to rest, comes to realize that she too must decide where she really belongs.

This is a sweeping story that will keep you reading until you have completed reading this book!
