Our book to read for our June 12th meetup is "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton.

Synopsis from Amazon.com:
"Like Frances Hodgson Burnett's beloved classic The Secret Garden, Kate Morton's The Forgotten Garden takes root in your imagination and grows into something enchanting--from a little girl with no memories left alone on a ship to Australia, to a Cornish sea heaving against wind-whipped cliffs, crowned by an airless manor house where an overgrown hedge maze ends in the walled garden of a cottage left to rot. This hidden bit of earth revives barren hearts, while the mysterious Authoress's fairy tales (every bit as magical and sinister as Grimm's) whisper truths and ignite the imaginary lives of children. --Mari Malcolm" "

"Shifting back and forth over a span of nearly 100 years, this is a sprawling, old-fashioned novel, replete with family secrets, stories-within-stories, even a maze and a Dickensian rag-and-bone shop. --Mary Ellen Quinn "

    interesting discussion, nice women with diverse interests. Toni does a wonderful job of leading the meetings. Only issue is the environment is so loud that it is difficult to hear the softer speakers.
