Beschreibung

A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, a maze, an aristocratic family, a love denied, a mystery - The Forgotten Garden is a captivating, atmospheric, and a compulsive listen about the past, ghosts, family, and memories from best-selling author Kate Morton.Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra's life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her family. Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza Makepeace Rutherford - the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the early twentieth century - as well as a cliff-top cottage on the other side of the world, Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell, on a quest to find out the truth about their history, their family and their past; little knowing that in the process, she will also discover a new life for herself.

thoroughly enjoyed this one

This book is one of the longer ones, and I found it enjoyable from beginning to end, spanning a time period of over one hundred years. It leads you back and forth, changing perspectives and time periods, never losing its suspense. A beautifully told (and read) family saga!

nette unterhaltung

Das kann man gut hören wenn man unterwegs ist und nicht weiter nachdenken will. Für lange Autofahrten, um das Englisch frisch zu halten. Die Story ist etwas melodramatisch und wird von vielen Seiten gleichzeitig aufgezogen. Ich hab es nicht bereut aber so richtig gefesselt hat mich das ganze auch nicht. Gut vorgelesen. Gut verständlich. Ein weiteres Buch von der gleichen Autorin würd ich nicht unbedingt hören wollen.
