If you are a fan of of Downton Abbey and desperately missing the PBS series, these are for you! Wonderful read that transports you worlds away to a time when estates were full of bustling hubs for families, friends and entertaining. Servants seamlessly cared for the needs of all.

Reminds me of DOWNTON ABBEY

I have read the House at Riverton and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are among the legions of people who love Downton Abbey; you will love this period piece about the changing attitudes and traditions in turn of the century Britain colored heavily by a melodramatic love affair between a married woman of the upper class to a down on his luck poet and the inevitable outcome of such an affair.

I absolutely loved this book. The author's writing style is easy to read. Got very involved with the main character!
Shannon
Awesome read. Kate Morton uses excellent flow of words and character interactions as well as painting a vivid picture of scenes. I enjoyed the flashbacks and flash-current, the transitions were done well. Overall a great read.

I enjoyed this book but felt like I had to read 3/4 of the book before things started happening. As a Downton Abbey fan I could visualize a lot of things in the book. A good read, but I enjoyed "The Secret Keeper" more!

Jumping around different time lines and points of view can be annoying at times but, I did enjoy the book. When there is a mystery to be solved, I can't seem to put it down.

It's not a light read because it jumps between storylines with various timne periods and events, but it's worth it! A struggle to find your families history!
Christine
Love stories that go back and forth from past to present!!! The Forgotten Garden was all that and a great mystery, too. Both are great reads.
Lourdes
The forgoten garden is my favorite book. Kate Morton is my favorite writer.
