{August 28, 2007}   The Reviews that Matter

As I’m waiting for the “official” reviews of The Garden of Eve to start rolling in, I received this one from Sara-Elizabeth, age 12, who posted it on my forum ( It reminded me of the reviews that really matter — those of my readers. I found this one to be so lovely and well written, I couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you!

Here’s what Sara has to say:

After reading the advance reader copy of Garden of Eve I have to let you know that in my opinion Garden of Eve is KL’s best book so far. The character list is small, but the content, twists and turns will keep you on the edge. Garden of Eve is very different from KL’s previous three books which I also enjoyed. Garden of Eve keeps you guessing what is real and what is fantasy, and the twists – love them! I read Garden of Eve in two sittings and turned around and read it again. I felt a connection to Eve, the main character. Eve, is an eleven year old girl, just a year younger than I am. She just lost her mother to cancer; I just lost my grandmother to cancer. Eve loves being told stories, and you guessed it, so do I.

Soon after Eve’s mothers death her father wants to start a new life in upstate New York, where he brought an Apple Orchard that has not grown any fruit for many many years. The Orchard is next door to a cemetery where Eve believes she sees a ghost. As well, more strange things start to happen, Eve receives a odd eleventh birthday present from a person unknown to her, and stories are told about the curse that prevents anything to grow in the orchard. It is enough to keep Eve’s head spinning in all directions. I wish I could tell you more, but I don’t want to spoil this excellent read!!! I suggest going to your favorite on-line book store and reserving your copy today!
