    1. Another fabulous book from Victoria Connelly I really felt as though I got to know Morton Hall and its gardens in great detail I loved finding out about the gardens, and seeing what Anne Maries and the others would discover in there next as an unlikely group of strangers inherit the Hall and their first task is to sort out the garden as it was rather overgrown Learning about the different members of the group, and seeing how alliances were formed and even new friendships was inspiring and com An [...]


    2. My Thoughts I think a lot of people live with the decisions of others, This is an interesting little weekend read, especially so if you love your gardens and community projects Here you will find three main storylines two present and one past for you to follow So it has a little bit of everything and Victoria is always reliable in presenting heartwarming novels I can t explain it, but I was drawn to this place It made me feel calm I love how a garden can do that even one that s negle My Thoughts [...]


    3. Who could resist a mysterious maze in the garden, which the owner of the estate insists on cultivating And when she dies, the town is shocked by her will which creates a hailstorm of controversy There are delicious twists and tuns in The heart of the Garden, that I won t spoil for readers, but I love how Victoria Connelly weaves a tale of love lost and found with the survivers.

    6. It s hard to categorize this dual time line novel except to say that it s a charming tale of love lost and found in a maze Emilia s tale is in the 1980s The story of Anne Marie, Cape, and Poppy is told in the present after they discover that they, among others, have inherited Morton Hall if they can work together for a year to restore the gardens There s a maze Love mazes, We don t have a lot of these in the US, nor do we have many great houses with large gardens This was a very good read, It s [...]


    7. While I didn t fall in love with this story, the premise kept my interest the entire time Why would a reclusive woman leave her opulent family home and it s immense collection of valuables and art to several people in the village, with whom she seemingly had no interest in These character have no idea why, and it appears to be nearly impossible that the group will work together However, under the watchful eye of the housekeeper, and with the current gardener s guidance, they begin to clear aw Wh [...]
