Eva returns to Cornwall, to her friends there, to scatter the ashes of her beloved sister. She stays to help build a tearoom. Searching for a hook to lure tourists to this out-of-the-way place, she discovers the legend of a 'Grey Lady' who haunts the location and a couple of smugglers who once operated nearby. Throwing herself into the project, she is startled to find her surrounding dissolve into a mist and finds herself 300 years or so into the past. Unable to control her comings and goings, she is set off balance by her passing back and forth between the two times. Then there's Daniel, a most attractive smuggler in the past.
Kearsley is a mistress of suspense and holds the reader in her hand. We want Eva to have her HEA, but how she manages it is a delightful surprise. I could barely put the book down it was that good.
But when Ms.Kearsley gets you into it...its like going at warp 9. You can't stop.nor do you want to.
I feel sorry for her losing her sister and all but I honestly didn't get super invested until she met Daniel.
These past characters at first-and sort of still-I found to be more interesting and likeable. With the exception of Claire, the others-Mark,Susan,Oliver,Felicity-weren't terribly interesting.
It was very remarkable to see how the unnatural love story of Eva/Daniel went on and progressed with her constantly disappearing. And more so, having to play the mute back in his time.
Seeing as to how I finished only minutes ago..my brain is a little fuzzy. The pieces are still clicking into place.
I'm afraid I'm not going into specifics with that phenomenon. You'll just have to read it.By the time you've finished you'll understand what I mean.
Admittedly, I had a wee bit of fun trying to place the pieces together.
Could Oliver be a descendant of Daniel?
Who was the gray lady?
Was Claire just an old lady who had started losing touch with reality?
But I promise you, you will never expect it to end the way it truly does.Maybe you will. But that's a very minor chance.
You will come to love a crabby cook from the 1700s with a thing for hard cider.
You will come to both despise and fear a man of the law.
Maybe you'll discover parallels between the times.
Maybe you'll even discover a secret or two.
With this I leave you with two questions.
Can time really be changed by our actions or is everything written in stone?
Can love truly conquer all?
Okay,so perhaps three.
Is time travel based on grief or sci fi technology?
Anyways, I really loved this book and highly recommend it.
Granted its not my favorite by this author.It is the second favorite.
That coveted first place spot belongs to "The Winter Sea". I highly suggest you read it if you have not already.
After losing her sister, Eva heads back to the home where they had spent summers growing up. It is where Eva remembers Katrina being happiest, where she wants to spread her ashes. While there, she is faced with the fact that the house will never be the one she remembers because it is missing her sister. She also learns she has the ability to jump through time.
She goes back to the home in 1715, when the owners were two brothers on the wrong side of the crown. They manage to stay just above the law, but there is always the risk of being caught and falling prey to the constable. The more time Eva spends with Daniel, the older brother, the more she starts to fall for him.
She continues to jump back and forth, helping Mark and Susan set up the home so it can continue to operate in the future, all the while realizing that she doesn't belong at the house at that time anymore. The more she is in the present, the more her heart wants to go back.
Kearsley paints a beautiful picture with her words. I have never been to Cornwall, and yet I could picture everything clearly in my mind. I could smell the see and feel the ground beneath my feet.
I don't really know what to say about Daniel and Eva's romance because it was beyond words. It fell exactly how it should have been. They never knew how much time they would have together and so they made the most of it. Daniel did not expect Eva to conform to his society's standards when it was just the two of them, and Eva gave Daniel a reason to be happy. It was like reading about two puzzle pieces finally fitting together.
The Rose Garden is a fantastic novel about love and what it means to be happy. It also reminds us that home is not always a place with four walls and a roof, it's about the feeling you have once you find it.
