The Forgotten Garden by K. Morton has a nice language and unusual beautiful mataphors. But, otherwise, the authoress couldn't decide whether she wanted to write a suspense novel, or fairy tale. The unexpected, cruel end points to the former, but otherwise the rest of the book is a fairy tale. The characters are either good, or bad, the coincidences plentiful and predictable, the main plot repeated with small alterations, and it has a happy end.
Perhaps, some people would like the book for entertainment, but it teaches you nothing and one cannot give it to a child, because of the suspense.

I enjoyed the basic storyline of `The Forgotten Garden' but the clichés and corniness of some of the content made it similar to reading the script of an episode of `Young and the Restless'. With soap operas, there tends to be a bit of predictability and a lot of coincidence, which is always unrealistic and unbelievable. While I get that this was a work of fiction, the story of Nell echoing the story of Kate, echoing the story of the fairy tales just made the novel a little nauseatingly coincidental for me. I thought it was a little simple and predictable and, as such, I would not recommend this book.
