Book Review: The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley
If you like Diana Galbadon, you'll love The Rose Garden. Though it takes place in Cornwall, there is a connection to the Stuarts. But it's mostly a story about smuggling, the beauty of Cornwall, and the relationship between Eva and Daniel. Eva must balance her life in the present with her longing to be with Daniel.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Fergal. He is Daniel's friend, an Irishman who 'adopts' Eva as his sister and the Murtagh of this story (though this isn't in any way a clone of Outlander).
The writing is lovely. I did find it a little slow at the beginning, but once Eva meets Daniel, I couldn't put the book down. Another wonderful story by Ms. Kearsley.
