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.

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!
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.
The forgoten garden is my favorite book. Kate Morton is my favorite writer.
Love her style and the the content of her books.
I enjoyed The House at Riverton more than the Forgotten Garden
