Deet’s Note: I gave this book 5-stars and would have given it more if I could. This is a truly lovely book.  You can get it for $1.99 today on Kindle which is a bargain since it is usually $9.99.

Eva returns to the only place that has ever felt like home, but she quickly discovers she is not alone in the old house on the Cornwall coast. The past reaches out to touch the present in this beautiful love story and haunting mystery.

“Whatever time we have,” he said, “it will be time enough.”

Eva Ward returns to the only place she truly belongs, the old house on the coast of Cornwall, England, seeking happiness in memories of childhood summers.

There she finds mysterious voices and hidden pathways that sweep her not only into the past, but also into the arms of a man who is not of her time.

But Eva must confront her own ghosts, as well as those of long ago. As she begins to question her place in the present, she comes to realize that she too must decide where she really belongs. A modern gothic historical fiction with elements of time travel, reincarnation, and romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susanna Kearsley.

Rose Garden Synopsis:

Deet’s Review from August 29, 2012:

“Whatever time we have,” he said, “it will be time enough.” (This line is to die for.  How utterly romantic.)

The romance here is slow to develop and there is a question of will she or won’t she.  The fact that Eva had no control over her time travel until late in the book added to the excitement.  There are surprises that are hinted at and unfold to satisfy our guesses.  There is action, pathos, friendship and love.  This is the kind of book that doesn’t leave you when the last page is read.  It raises the “what if” questions and we really want to know what happens next and does it happen to anyone else. Absolutely delightful and this will go on my this year’s “top reads” list.
