A riveting and romantic journey through time, The Rose Gardendrops a modern woman into the middle of a historical fiction novel when she's thrown back to 18th century Cornwall--only to find that might just be where she belongs.

She's seeking comfort in memories of childhood summers, but what she finds is mysterious voices and hidden pathways that sweep her not only into the past, but also into the arms of a man who is not of her time.

Soon Eva discovers that the man, Daniel Butler, is very, very real and he draws her into a world of intrigue, treason, and love. Inside the old British house, begins to question her place in the present, she realizes she must decide where she really belongs: in the life she knows or the past she feels so drawn towards.

Booklist Review: "Eva Ward's beloved sister was a famous actress, and her widowed husband asks Eva to spread her ashes where her sister was happiest. Eva decides to return to Trelowarth, in Polgelly, Cornwall, where she and her sister spent their summers. Her arrival is bittersweet. She is welcomed with open arms, and the old manor house and gardens are just as she remembers them. She returns to her old room and, while trying to sleep, hears voices next door. She thinks they must belong to workmen but finds out that no one is next door. While walking through the gardens, she sees a man dressed in costume. Or is he? Strange occurrences keep happening until Eva finds herself ricocheting between time periods and falling in love in 1715, during the tumultuous reign of King George I. Kearsley makes the impossible seem real as she weaves a tale full of genuine characters and a strong sense of place and makes history come alive.--Engelmann, Patty Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Kearsley (The Winter Sea) beautifully evokes the wild landscapes and history of Cornwall in this pleasant time-travel romance. In the present day, Eva Ward travels to the Cornish coast carrying her sister's ashes, determined to lay her to rest at Treloworth, the estate they summered at as children with the Hallet family. As she reconnects with the Hallets, Eva tries to figure out how to start her life over. Then Eva is transported back to 1715, a time when smuggling was common and hidden Jacobites swarmed the coast. At first she fears she might be hallucinating, but soon she meets and falls in love with widower Daniel Butler, who accepts Eva's time traveling at face value. Kearsley masterfully writes authentic voices for Eva and Daniel as they wrestle with their improbable connection and its implications. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
