A Good Read...

I just finished this book ...."The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton.
I loved it so much I just had to share it with you.

I don't want to give too much away...but it starts out when a little girl is found alone on a ship that's bound for Austrailia...the story follows this little girls life and her search for her real family...the research spans 3 generations with a beautiful love story and lots of twists and turns...characters I loved to hate and characters I loved to love.
This book has it all!
If you're looking for a good read this summer...I know you'll love this one.

Same same yet again. I listened to this book on my ipod - twice. I love it. There is another Kate Morten book - that is good too.

Just when do you find time to read my dear friend? I cannot even find enough time to quilt. I will however get me a copy of the book to take with me to the cabin.
Monday hugs!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe you let your prince take your "computerized" spinning wheel apart! You must really trust your "Mr. Honey". I am in suspense, wondering if there will be a "happily ever after"!
btw, don't you have other sewing machines? I know you have a little one you travel with so you aren't totally distressed in your castle!! :)
