Journey across realms to revisit The Garden as it once was so long ago. Visit a place between time & space where eternal enlightenment is lived out as Heaven on Earth. Walt is ready to pass from the physical world to join his long lost love. Caught between bliss & the past, he must first forgive his daughter and himself before joining his love, his Meg.
The Garden is a story of love. A heart-wrenching & warming story of family and what it is to forgive a lifetime of pain, to be free.
"Soon though?" She understood what he was asking of her. "Yes Walt. Soon.""
She sent him off to forgive their daughter, and for her to forgive him, to heal the wounds. Only then could he join her. Only then..."
A journey seeking forgiveness is the end, is the beginning, & is simply beautiful. Love's power & heaven's beauty blur the lines between past, space, present & time in this touching fantasy. Three Boundless Stars
The Garden brings us into the thoughts of a recently passed wife and mother, Megan; her soon to pass husband, Walt; and an estranged daughter, Amy. During Walt’s final days, he travels to another time, a time when he is a younger man, to visit his forgiving wife. At the same time, Amy is visiting her father in the hospital while remembering her younger days.
I appreciate Nuckels’ writing style and can’t help but wonder how remarkable a novel he writes would be. I just may have to check out Blind Trust, at 214 pages, it should be a longer read than The Garden.
I give this book 3 boundless stars, it was good.
