Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett

I cannot possibly say anything glowing and wonderful about this book that hasn't already been said a thousand times before so I'll just say I loved it.  It's beautiful.

 

And what does it say about me and the jaded age I've reached when I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop in this story:  a fight amongst the three of them, a pre-adolescent love triangle, a manufactured crisis...something.  The lack of all of these things is, I think, what I loved most of all.
