A riveting tale of a walled garden, a missing child and a family legacy. Cassandra's grandmother had been found on the docks in Australia with no one to look after her. She was four and said she didn't know her name. So a dock worker took her home, because his wife had been unable to have a child. It was the early 1910's. The book flips back and forth in time. Some times they discuss Cassandra as a child, sometimes her grandmother Nell as a child and sometimes Nell's mom and aunt as children. It's almost like listening to a favorite great aunt or grandparent tell a story. All the elements are there and they come through in the end.
