Description

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller "A thrilling, haunting, and deeply romantic story."
-Rachel Hore, internationally bestselling author of The Memory Garden
"Whatever time we have," he said, "it will be time enough."
Eva Ward returns to the only place she truly belongs, the old house on the Cornish coast, seeking happiness in memories of childhood summers. There she finds mysterious voices and hidden pathways that sweep her not only into the past, but also into the arms of a man who is not of her time.
But Eva must confront her own ghosts, as well as those of long ago. As she begins to question her place in the present, she comes to realize that she too must decide where she really belongs.
From Susanna Kearsley, author of the New York Times bestseller The Winter Sea and a voice acclaimed by fans of Gabaldon, du Maurier, and Niffenegger alike, The Rose Garden is a haunting exploration of love, family, the true meaning of home, and the ties that bind us together.
Praise for New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Winter Sea:
"Lifts readers straight into another time and place to smell the sea, feel the castle walls, and sense every emotion. These are marks of a fantastic storyteller."
-RT Book Reviews Top Pick of the Month, 4 1/2 stars
"Ingenious...a creative tour de force. Sometimes an author catches lightning in a bottle, and Susanna Kearsley has done just that."
-New York Journal of Books.
