Rose Garden

The Rose Garden - Susanna Kearsley Eva goes to a childhood haunt in England - an old house called Trelowrath - to mourn the loss of her sister. While there, she starts seeing things and hearing things. She wonders what is happening - are the past and present co-mingling.I really loved this story. It is the perfect romance for me. I love all the little bits of the author's foreshadowing in this book, and the emotions of some of the character and the intermingling of history. I love the romantic tension - the patience that the reader must have to watch things evolve, even the characters have that same waiting. Which just makes it all the more dramatic.I look forward to exploring other works by the author.Recommend for those who love historical fiction, clean romance and mystery.
