I loved this book! The multi-layered storylines are deftly woven to give a complete view of the Mountrachet/Makepeace families. The homage to THE SECRET GARDEN was a wonderful incorporation into the story. The cameo appearance of Frances Hodgson Burnett was inspired. I can't say enough good things about this book...if you haven't read it then it should be added to your "must read" list ASAP!
