4.0 out of 5 stars "The book was, okay!" Sept. 12 1998
By A Customer
The book's about Thea, a 16-year-old girl who's suffering of traumatic amnesia after an accident on her bike. In the hospital she got these dreams about a beautiful garden with colorful flowers and a silverpond. When she returns home, the garden is like in her dreams, but the silverpond doesn't work, it seems to have been broken for years, and the flowerbeds are overgrown, like nobody had taken care of them in a long time. She doesn't regognize anyone in the family, the house though, is a clear picture in her head. But the rooms and furniture doesn't fit in and the room that sopose to be hers, she remembers a servent called Annie, should live. Thea begins to see people and hear voices that nobody else does, and if Lucas hadn't shown up she probably would have gone crazy!
I think the book was great. It was exiting to read it, but I didn't like Thea, as a person. She was too angry all the time!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time favourite! Feb. 26 2001
This book might be one of the best books I've ever read, and that's saying something. Told in amazing detail by Thea, the main character who is suffering from amnesia, you realize how different two worlds can be for the same person. Intertwined in a mystery of the memories she is having that aren't hers, Thea is challanged with romance and spooks...I was so scared at times and then at other times I just wanted to smile and never stop because it was so good. Margaret Buffie has real talent for developing characters and I could see the house they were living in exactly. The book really brought out my emotions and I would recommend it to anyone! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars This was the best ghost story I've ever read! July 21 1999
By A Customer
Anyone who likes ghost stories would LOVE this book! I swear, it's the best book I've read in a long time! I usually take 2 weeks to read a book, but I got this one done in 4 days! I couldn't put it down! Everything in the book seemed so realistic, and had a spooky feeling throughout the whole book. I would recommend it to anyone who loves supernatural or ghost stories!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but annoying April 5 2001
By Andrea
I enjoy these kind of stories and I would have liked it except the main character was soooooo annoying! She was rude and disrespectful. I just thought that it was hard to pay attention to the plot when you had a whinny 16-year-old in your face. Over all, the story was good and you might find Thea nice and interesting. Go ahead and try it out! You'll probably enjoy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars eh June 11 1999
By A Customer
I didn't like this book all that well. The beginning was ok, and the storyline got better towards the middle of the book. The ending, however, was hard to follow and didn't flow with the rest of the book. It's like the author didn't take very much time to think of an ending, and was tired of writing the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! March 20 2000
By A Customer
I think this book is fantastic, full of wonderful details ofThea's life and the dark garden. The mystery is filled with spookystuff, too. My sister and I both read it and we both loved it. We talked about it for ages after. I read it in a few days and it kept my interest right to the end.
