ARC view: The Memory Garden by Mary Rickert

Book summary(via Goodreads):

Bay Singer has bigger secrets than most. She doesn't know about them, though. Her mother, Nan, has made sure of that. But one phone call from the sheriff makes Nan realize that the past is catching up. Nan decides that she has to make things right, and invites over the two estranged friends who know the truth. Ruthie and Mavis arrive in a whirlwind of painful memories, offering Nan little hope of protecting Bay. But even the most ruined garden is resilient, and their curious reunion has powerful effects that none of them could imagine, least of all Bay.

This insomniac's review:

I really enjoyed this read, bookish buddies! It has a bit of believable magic woven in, a la Alice Hoffman, which I found quite entertaining. It was slow-moving, but was full of loveable characters and a bit of mystery!

This is a great little summer's read for a long, hot day!

Worth staying up all night to read?

The pace isn't super fast, so it may not be one of those novels that would keep you up all night- but it is still well worth the read.

Rating: 3.5 stars
