Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Kate Morton

Has anyone read books by Kate Morton?  I loved her book The Forgotten Garden, and didn't like The House at Riverton too much.  Right now I just started The Distant Hours, I'm hoping it's more The Forgotten Garden-esque than The House at Riverton.

 

 

Thoughts on The House at Riverton? Should I give it another chance?

 

P.S. Wasn't The Forgotten Garden brilliant!? : )

I've read all her books and I loved them all. I love her writing style and her voice also. I think The Distant Hours is the best but some of the reviewers say that it is too wordy. I enjoyed every word and have to disagree. 

 

Yes, I have to agree that The Forgotten Garden was brilliant but I think The Distant Hours even surpasses The Forgotten Garden. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

 

The House of Riverton was her first book. I enjoyed that one too but The Forgotten Garden did blow me away, so we can say that she was just warming up with The House of Riverton. We can only expect her to get better! Can't wait for her next book!
