Our customer reviews

Kate Morton is Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl for grown-ups. While she doesn't write about magic faraway trees or boys who live in giant peaches, she has a gift for storytelling that sweeps you up into the lives of her characters and their worlds. Morton has written three books to date - The Shifting Fog / The House at Riverton, The Forgotten Garden and The Distant Hours. Each book is set in the grand manor houses of early 20th century England. Present day events become loose threads that unravel the long-held secrets contained within their walls. I loved all three books so much I can't pick a favourite and I recommend them all. You can read more of my book recommendations at www.thereadingexperiment.comshow more

I really enjoyed this book about a little girl put on a boat to Australia, and left alone. We don't know why or who she is waiting for. She has a bang on the head and forgets who she is and the adventure begins to find out. The book jumps between 1913, 1975 and 2005 and the story untwines as we go along. Lots of twists and turns, and a surprise at the end. I read 'The House at Riverton by the same autor, which was good, but I really was gripped by 'The Forgotten Garden', and look forward to her next more
