The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a lovely book! It hits all of the right notes: historical fiction, romance, time travel, mystery. If you haven't read Susanna Kearsley before be prepared for dual timelines, because they all seem to have them, and she does them well.
Eva returns to Cornwall coast to grieve her sister's death. She finds her childhood friends still tending the home where they stayed with the beautiful rose gardens. Weird happenings begin occurring to Eva, and she finds herself in the middle of a strange mystery that crosses generations. This book unfolds slowly and it ends up going to a place I didn't expect but fully loved.
Well-worth the read, and stands up to a re-read. Lovely.
