In my opinion, her earlier work still outshines her more recent, more "mature" books with regards to plot development and execution, character development, character description, and just plain likability of the characters. I was soooo taken with the Donovan family in "The Californians" and the Cameron's in the "Fireside" series. I wanted their stories to go on! Even The Texas Trilogy left me wanting more of the life of the characters...but these "English Garden" characters leave me shrugging with indifference.
Cassie and Tate are the main focus of the story (Cassie is the "Visitor") and they fall in love as she reads to him as he recuperates from an accident that has left him blind. Will he regain his sight? And if he does, will he still want Cassie, who doesn't see herself as beautiful as her sisters? Then there are Lizzie (Cassie's sister) and Moreland. Moreland is a friend of Lizzie's brother Edward, and she has loved him from afar. Moreland, blind to Lizzie's feelings, is certain she doesn't care for him! Once he finds out her true feelings, the gentle chase is on.
I found Lizzie and Moreland to be more fun than Cassie and Tate.Read more ›
This book is written in a style that fits the historical scenario (1812 in the English countryside), but is not as interesting to me as some others by Lori Wick. My favorites by Lori Wick include The Princess, Song for Silas, and Sophie's Heart.
I loved that Lori Wick decided to have both sisters involved in a romance instead of just one. I enjoyed Lizzie and Morland just as much as I did Cassie and Tate. This was another book, I just couldn't put down until I had read every word.
I felt that I could really identify with Cassie and her doubts of herself, because I also have had some of the same. I also enjoyed how Tate wasn't always perfect in his faith and that gave him a real sense of being human.
This entire series is definitely a must have addition to your collection. All of the books in the English Garden Series were excellent, especially the last three.
I actully didn't even buy this book. Every once in a while either my mom or dad took me to [a book store]. Since it didn't totally capture my attention, it was the way to go. The only problem I had was finding my spot in the book after not having read it for a while.
I agree with the reviewer above that said it had so many characters it was hard to keep them all straight. My favorite parts were when Lori Wick would write about Anne and Robert Weston. The Westons were my favorite couple.

I found the book relaxing and entertaining, but not evoking the deep feelings or profound truth of some of her earlier works. Still worth reading, for Lori Wick fans.Published on Aug. 21 2003
I liked this book. I love the way she portrays the characters thinking & talking about God. On the downside it was hard to keep up with all the characters. I was confused. Read morePublished on June 20 2003
