Read in July, 2011

After Evie's mother dies of cancer, her whole world is turned upside down. Her father, unable to bear living in the same place, moves them across the country to a house that is not only in a dead apple orchard, but also near a cemetery. Everyone in the town says that the orchard is cursed, but because of her mother's death, Evie no longer believes in curses or fairy tales. It's only when she receives a mysterious seed and decides to plant it that she begins to see that magic is all around her, and that it can heal her loneliness and loss.

I absolutely loved this book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. The magic and mystery of the apple orchard, as well as Evie's journey within the orchard, made me feel so much. I couldn't help but cry a little at the end. I highly recommend this book for readers who love fantasy, fairy tales, and ghost stories. Even though Garden of Eve isn't a scary book, it's message will haunt you after you've finished reading it.
