I never have had a dream about my childhood while sleeping. I have had times where I'll be out and about and a memory will come to me in a daydream. Places, events,people, sometimes good, sometimes bad. At times I wish I could go back to some of my events in my past and do them over for one reason or another. I still live in the same town I grew up in, just as Claire does, it's comfortable, yet I still wonder sometimes is there life beyond it.

I used to have a hard time remembering things that happened during childhood, but lately it's been easier. Certain smells and sounds can bring back a memory, but I don't believe I have ever had a dream about childhood that I can remember.

The first chapter has a way of drawing you in. I'm interested to find out the family history, what's going on with the garden and how it came to be, and who is this guy next door?! The slight magical element adds a nice touch and intrigue to the novel. It's easy to imagine yourself as a "townie."
I'm enjoying everyone's first impressions. It's taking me back to when I was writing the book...
