The Gardener’s Daughter by K.A. Hitchins is an absolutely marvellous thriller that had me hooked and guessing, clinging to the edge of my seat. I was immediately drawn into the novel and asking questions from the start.
There are the themes of identity and searching to belong. “I was no longer the person I thought I was.” Deep down we all want to know our roots. Who are we? Where do we come from? Where we have been is not as important as where we are and where we are heading. We need to listen to the voices of the present and not confuse them with the voices of the past.
The novel is about truth and lies. How would you feel if your whole life was built upon a lie?
