The Bone Garden has been in my library since purchased in 2008. Thought I better get to it!! Lovely story. The Bone Garden is a page turning novel. A recently divorced woman purchases an old house and finds the ancient remains of a woman crudely buried in her yard. The local police aren’t particularly interested; the skeletal remains are over 100 years old. However, it would seem this body was the victim of murder. The house once belonged to a woman who saved a myriad of papers that were hauled away to the residence of a distant relative, an old man living alone. Thus is the thrust of The Bone Garden.
The author bounces time from the 1830s to modern day with seamless ease. The story unfolds primarily through letters. Who murdered this woman. Who is she? You’ll have fun figuring it out, and be convinced a few times that you know who it is … but …
The romance element is subtle and cute, and fade-to-black. The characters are all well defined. Narration by Susan Denaker is good, male and female voice alike. You’ll have no trouble discerning who-says-what-to-who.
A fun mystery. Enjoy!!
