The Insistent Garden by Rosie Chard

This book was intriguing from the very first paragraph.  It held my attention to the last paragraph.  It was a coming of age story but with a twist.  I knew there was something right around the corner but I didn’t know what it was.  I wanted to cry at times for the main character Edith and cheer at other times.  The author wrote from a few different viewpoints, which adds a lot of depth and colour to the story.  It was like viewing a 3-D movie but better.  This was Rosie Chards second novel.  Her debut novel was Seal Intestine Raincoat, which I think I will check out.
