Fantastic story! Ms Henson's characters immediately drew me into the story. I was captivated by Gretchel, her family at Snyder Farms, and the path she was destined for. I wasn't expecting a love story and was pleasantly surprised to find The Wicked Garden is one, as Gretchel learns to love again after escaping an abusive marriage with help from the power of her ancestors. Henson seamlessly connects multiple characters from multiple story lines into one cohesive masterpiece. Recommend to anyone looking for a complex read that will have you spellbound from beginning to end.
