    The Garden Of Lost Secrets By A M Howell October, 1916 Clara has been sent to stay with her aunt and uncle while England is at war But when she reaches their cottage on an enormous country estate, Clara is plunged into a tangle of secrets A dark, locked room, a scheming thief, and a mysterious boy who only appears at night. My Take We all know the story of the first world war but we don t know the numerous and millions of stories that were running simultaneously during the war This is one of those stories which runs parallel to the war and it shows the life a girl who is facing this dangerous situation of being stuck in the war So, this is the story of Clara, who is very much braver and stronger but not in the very beginning but then she actually goes through an amazing transformation to be whatever she is right now So she is sent to her uncle and aunt place to live or survive during this war and even she has a brother who is secretly fighting in the war so, basically the book has a lot of hidden secrets in itThe place she has come to live is also very secretive, the garden of unknown secrets, her brother s secrets and the intensity of War going much deeper day by day, so everything is so amusing The best part the book i...

    Clara, who came to live with her unruly aunt Mrs Gilbert because of Kent things are really not going skilfully well because of the War Her father is not well, so her mom doesn t want her to be with them She found Will in the boiler who is hiding there with the help of his brother Robert Fruits are getting stolen from the garden, especially Pineapples and Peaches In the meantime, Clara is also curious and concerned about the locked room where Mrs Gilbert has kept some letters without addressing anyone. What is the secret of this room Who is stealing those fruits from the garden..This book is set in the wartime of England I was feeling like I am in the Victorian age, and the author is describing the story in the quite lyrical way The character Clara is so beautiful and tremendous of positive image of her age She is curious, vivid, aglow, impatience, active, amicable and smart Thereby Mrs Gilbert, who portrayed as turbulent, filled with mixed feelings and emotions Sometime she is slapping Clara, and sometime she shows enormous care for her It was so motherly I love...

    If you like classics such as The Secret Garden, and enjoyed the downstairs portions of the Downton Abbey television series you will fall for this tale of a young girl sent to relatives living on a great estate during the autumn of the Somme only to discover it s not the joyous greeting she expected and a wistful air of secrets ...

    There are actually lots of secrets in the Garden of Lost Secrets, and following the young heroine Clara as she uncovers them is what makes this such an enjoyable read The backdrop of WWI, and its effect on every individual, is a poignant theme throughout, adding a darker background tone to the uplifting and gripping central narrative of a young girl s horticultural advent...

    Clara is staying with her aunt and uncle while her father recovers from a gas attack during the Great War She remembers them as kind figures, joking and laughing, but the two bleak, strained adults who take her in are almost strangers They both work for an Earl and while Clara tries to make herself helpful in the grounds and their tiny cottage, she notices some things that don t quite add upThis would be a fantastic additional novel for a class studying the First World War, as it deals with how things were going in Britain with most of the men away It also talks about something I had never known England s farmers were growing pineapples in hothouses It s interesting to learn about the different types The writing is so atmospheric it s like being there, in the damp warm hothouses and the damp, freezing coal cellars.I want to mention the writing again, as it is amazing Crows bustled in the sky like black handkerchiefs is just one example of this, keeping the lines perfectly readable but still very evocative.I recommend this to anyone at all interested in the War or in a good mystery story.I received a proof copy which did not affect my review in any way The windows rattled gently in the wind A scuffle on the gravel outside What was that whispered Will.Another scuffle.Clara s breath caught in her throat.A scrabbling, sniffing noise just beyond the glass An animal a rat maybe, Will whispered On the hunt for some food He brought his hands to his cheeks and t...
