The Rose Garden Book Review



 
5 out of 5

Contemporary-Historical Fiction


Susanna Kearsley's books just get better and better. The Rose Garden is a time travel book that is handled so well. It is a romance that spans present day and eighteenth century England. She has done her research, making one feel they have actually gone to the past.

The history of the first Jacobite Rebellion is told among the romantic theme of the novel, without interrupting or distracting the reader. It makes me want to 'find' a ley line! Just kidding!

The romantic side of this novel has an unusual twist, but it is very intriguing. I loved the ending! I don't want to tell more...you have to read this book.
 
Recommendation: Another fantastic novel from Kearsley is The Winter Sea. It’s a must read!
