...the Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. At first, I wasn't sure about reading this thick 560 page book, but once I started reading I was intrigued by the mystery in the book.
Here's a summary from Booklist: "In 1913, a little girl arrives in Brisbane, Australia, and is taken in by a dockmaster and his wife. She doesn’t know her name, and the only clue to her identity is a book of fairy tales tucked inside a white suitcase. When the girl, called Nell, grows up, she starts to piece together bits of her story, but just as she’s on the verge of going to England to trace the mystery to its source, her grandaughter, Cassandra, is left in her care. When Nell dies, Cassandra finds herself the owner of a cottage in Cornwall, and makes the journey to England to finally solve the puzzle of Nell’s origins. Shifting back and forth over a span of nearly 100 years, this is a sprawling, old-fashioned novel, as well-cushioned as a Victorian country house, replete with family secrets, stories-within-stories, even a maze and a Dickensian rag-and-bone shop. All the pieces don’t quite mesh, but it’s a satisfying read overall, just the thing for readers who like multigenerational sagas with a touch of mystery. --Mary Ellen Quinn"
I'd give this 4 out of 5 stars. The characters were well developed and the story kept me guessing on how everything pieced together until near the end. Another favorite thing about the book was that things were resolved in the end and I wasn't left with unanswered questions.
