The Forgotten Garden By Kate Morton (2010)
Review by Elaine Rooker Jack
Review by Elaine Rooker Jack
What it’s about, from the CD cover: “A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, a maze, an aristocratic family, a love denied, a mystery – the Forgotten Garden is a captivating, atmospheric and compulsively readable story of the past, ghosts, family, and memories.”

Q: “How, as a new mother, can I stay away from competitive mothering? It seems like everything is a competition these days with parenting, and you can feel pressure from others for not doing things a certain way.”
Joyce: Pressure from parents can make a child’s life pretty miserable, as well as their own. Setting expectations is nothing to scoff at, but a parent needs to keep in mind the negative impact premature competition could have on a child.
