The Bone Garden

The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen

What was this book about?
This combines a tale of the past with a story of the present. Recently divorced Julia Hamill finds a body on the grounds of her new house. She can’t help but be interested in the history of this occurrence when it is discovered this body was placed there in the early 1800s. In her quest for the story, and through letters from Oliver Wendell Holmes, she finds out the story of Irish immigrant Rose, med student Norris, baby Maggie, and a serial killer.

What was your favorite part about this book?
I liked the story in the past. It just flowed. It wasn’t at all what I expected in terms of its description. I wasn’t sure if I would like it and I found it really interesting.
