Over the intervening months, her parents honestly believed that Addy's strange trip had only been a dream; hallucinations which a feverish brain and an overactive imagination had conjured. And Addy found herself being lulled by her parents explanation...almost believing that what she had experienced had never really happened. However, Addy can't completely quell her doubts: there was supposed to be another person with her - a boy with red hair and moonlike glasses - someone who was very important to her, yet Addy can't quite grasp her fleeting memories of him.
Now with March just beginning, Addy finds herself at a loss. The Garden is different, strange and almost foreboding - but Addy still finds a certain peace and calmness whenever she walks there. On one of her solitary walks, Addy finds a curious looking sundial, lying half-buried in the snow. When she holds it in her hand, she slowly begins to recover some of her lost memories. She slowly begins to remember Connor, along with the vague feeling that he is in horrible danger. Despite her increasing suspicion that Connor needs her help, Addy has absolutely no idea where he is or how she can get back to him.
In order to rescue her kidnapped friend, Addy must find a way to enter the Median Realms once more, traveling to the center of the Garden's magical Labyrinth to free Connor from the influence of the witch-queen Uthrace. And together, Connor and Addy must learn to control their own magical abilities to fight the growing evil threatening the Human and Fairy Realms.
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I found the plot exciting and well-developed. It was a very quick read for me, and I am delighted to say that I have Ms. Wallace's award-winning 'Under a Fairy Moon' on my TBR pile already. I would give this book a definite A+!
Full Disclosure: 'Wintergarden' by T. M. Wallace read and reviewed by Mareena McGirr, an avid reader and book reviewer from Albany, New York. Many thanks to Dorothy at 'Pump up Your Book' and the author as I received a copy of this book for free from them.
As you read T.M. Wallace's WINTERGARDEN the words become real. The words become images. The reader is taken on a journey to a lovely, but not all too friendly different world. As you're reading you get a chill and you start to have a slight fear overcome you. You fear for Addy and the evil and dark that is out to get her. The reader may find himself or herself thinking a lot about the characters because they' re not the ordinary simple characters. They' re very complicated. They have inner turmoil and at times the reader is drawn into that turmoil. The author writes a mixtures of charm and mystery of the old fairy tales with mental and spiritual battles. As you read you are journeying into a magical world with witches, fairies and a magical labyrinth that draws you to explore it. This story is a battle between the human and the magical worlds of which Addy and Conner must fight with their own magical abilities to end the evil between the human and the fairy worlds. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fairy tale worlds. This one is different. You can feel the elements and see the scenery and almost interact with the characters. It's HUMAN vs. FAIRY.
I was given a complimentary copy of WINTERGARDEN from the author, T.M. Wallace and Pump Up Your Book Virtual Book Tours for my view of the book.
I would give this book 4 STARS.

About the Author:
T. M. Wallace lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and four children. At eight years old, she won a short story contest and was published in a local newspaper. She wrote her first book at ten years old called "The Adventures of Pinkstar," about a stuffed rabbit who magically comes to life. T. M. Wallace received her Master's degree in English Literature from Carleton University and a degree in Education from the University of Ottawa. In 2012 her book, "Under A Fairy Moon," won the Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award for Fantasy and the Canadian Christian Writing Award for Young Adult fiction. "Under A Fairy Moon" is published by Brownridge Publishing (July 2011) in paperback and ebook formats and its sequel, "Wintergarden" was released at the end of December, 2014.
Fifteen year old Addy Marten starts to believe Connor and Uthrace were all a dream. But when she finds Connor's sun dial in her neighbor's garden, Addy knows none of it was a dream and Connor is in trouble. Mrs. Tavish knows more about Connor and the sundial than Addy ever did. With Mrs. Tavish's help, Addy ventures out into the Garden's Magic Labyrinth in search of the entrance to the Median Realms. Addy meets some unexpected creatures while in the Labyrinth. All of which in their own way try to detour her. She has to get to Connor soon or it will be too late.
Connor has wandered the Median Realms so long that he is beginning to forget who he even is and where he has come from. After fighting off Uthrace's pleas, Connor comes upon a dragon. The dragon takes him to the River of Stars, where he will learn of his true destiny.
Uthrace will stop at nothing to lure Connor and Addy into her grasp. Being the Witch-Queen, she is stronger than anything around. And the only way to defeat her is for the two of them, Addy and Connor to join forces.
The dynamic between Addy and Connor is very comforting. I liked it a lot. The two of them are stronger than they realize and when they finally discover it, the story really takes off. Very enjoyable story!
