The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
I have been recommended to read Kate Morton for a while (you know who you all are), but I’m sorry to disappoint, because the book just was not for me. I was kind of bored with it. . .
We discussed it over at Devourer of Books, but I’ll give you a quickie overview here. A golem is created by a rabbi in order to be a wife for a not-so-wonderful man. Problem? A golem is inherently bad, and will listen to a master. . . but can still get out of hand.
Both the golem and the jinni are lucky enough to meet mentors that help guide them on their paths. But they are both very restless creatures, and when they coincidentally meet each other, their lives change.
So even though the book is super long, take a chance on it! It’s worth the read.
Have you read either of these books?
