When Eva's film star sister Katrina dies, she leaves California and returns to Cornwall, where they spent their childhood summers, to scatter Katrina's ashes and in doing so return her to the place where she belongs. But Eva must also confront the ghosts from her own past, as well as those from a time long before her own. For the house where she so often stayed as a child is home not only to her old friends the Halletts, but also to the people who had lived there in the eighteenth century. When Eva finally accepts that she is able to slip between centuries and see and talk to the inhabitants from hundreds of years ago, she soon finds herself falling for Daniel Butler, a man who lived - and died - long before she herself was born. Eva begins to question her place in the present, and in laying her sister to rest, comes to realise that she too must decide where she really belongs, choosing between the life she knows and the past she feels so drawn towards.

4.0 The Rose Garden (Audible Audio)
This is a beautifully written romance. It could probably be considered a clean romance as there are no graphic descriptions of sex in it. The story is told in two time periods throughout the book. My only complaint is that the main character's romantic interest isn't really given a lot of time in...

4.0 The Rose Garden
Once again I was caught up in the imagery created by the words of Susanna Kearsley. This is a quiet book, meaning that not much happens. There isn't crazy drama. It's a story about Eva who ends up in Cornwall, a place that represents happiness. She is grieving and trying to find her place in thi...

I liked the beginning of the book, with it's Daphne du Maurier/Mary Stewart vibe, but the whole time travel thing just didn't quite work.
