I really enjoyed 'The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton. Will I like 'The House at Riverton'?

I haven't read The Forgotten Garden but i have read the House at Riverton and i liked it....its not a literary classic but it was good to read

That's kind of you smile

But my Mum's got a copy she can lend me, and she lives not far away

This was no 'classic' either, but it had me really engaged as it jumps from era to era though the thread of characters always remains intact

I have read both. I found the Forgotten Garden quite slow to get into and it annoyed me at first but I did enjoy it once I got going.

The House at Riverton is the better book out of the two in my opniion.

the Riverton one is the same, which is why i liked it too. She very easily takes you from one era to another without you having to think too much about whats happened previously iykwim

Might give it a try, then. But will wait a while if the style is really similar. I prefer to go from one type of book to something totally diferent

i haven't read The Forgotten Garden but have read the House at Riverton and I really enjoyed it - just my kind of easy holiday/not having to think too hard read..
I too enjoyed the way it jumped eras.
Enjoy! smile

Fairylight, if you like they it jumped eras, have you read the Bone Garden, that was very good,

Both books are very similar, but I liked Riverton best.
Have you read The Thirteenth Tale? That's a good book in a similar vein.
