Review by: Lorraine Gibson on Nov. 27, 2012 :
I could not put The Serpentine Garden Path down. I fell in love with the story of Susan and John Dean, and I couldn't wait to download and read The Gardener's Wife and Letter's From The Gardener. They were all excellent and I am now looking forward to reading A Garden In The Wilderness as soon as in is available as an e-book.

Review by: Daniela Lorenzi on June 07, 2012 :
The Serpentine Garden Path was a joy to read. I took it with me on a trip to Europe and it was a perfect companion: well-defined characters that I quickly came to care about; great descriptions; a plot that kept me interested and eager to know what lay around the bend; a well-researched historical context from which I learned many new things. This book kept me thoroughly engaged and entertained. Now I am eager to accomppany Susan and John Dean as they embark on the next phase of their story together. I know that it will be an adventure worth following.

Review by: David Bray on April 16, 2012 :
This book will appeal to anyone interested in history, genealogy, romance fiction or just good reading. The Serpentine Path has plot, good characters anyone can identfy with, conflict, intrigue, sentiment, in fact, all the elements of a good yarn. The fact that it is based on a true story makes it even more appealing. And the research which provides the background and historical context is impressive. Well worth the small investment.
