The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

The Forgotten GardenThe Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A young girl, a baby really, about four years old in 1913 is put on a ship by a woman she called "The Authoress" and told to wait, be quiet and she would be back. She didn't return and the little girl traveled, with her little suitcase, all the way to Australia.

During the trip she fell and hit her head and didn't remember anything, including her name. Hugh, who worked on the docks, found her alone after everyone had left and took her home to his wife rather than leave a child alone.

Who she was and where from was a mystery that lasted almost one hundred years.

And very good book.
