Start the Year Right with a Great New Read from Julia Kelly

by Donna Huber

Are you looking for your first 5-star read of the year? Then you need to pick up Julia Kelly's new novel The Last Garden in England. It was so good that I wish there was more or that I had read it slower.

The Last Garden in England
January 2021; Gallery Books; 978-1982107826
audio, ebook, print (368 pages); historical fiction
Sometimes there is one timeline I enjoy more than the others, but I loved all three. I couldn't wait to dive deeper when one of the present-day characters unearthed a tidbit of historical relevance. Or seeing how an event in the past played out in the present day. 

With so many people taking up gardening during the pandemic I felt the central focus on this one garden to be perfect, very apropos. I wanted to learn just as much about the garden as I did about the characters that walked among its blooms. And I loved the characters. They were so alive that I felt like I could go out and meet them. 

I have read Kelly's last three historical novels and have enjoyed them all, but I think The Last Garden in England is her best one yet.
