I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns through the family history and the secrets revealed along the way. The suspense was maintained throughout the book and each time a new secret or piece of the puzzle came to life, I just wanted more! I loved the authoress and her fairytales, the mansion, the maze, the brooch and of course the 'secret garden'.
This book came highly recommended, and I'm so proud in the knowledge Kate Morton is an Australian author. This is a terrific piece of writing.
My rating = *****
