A woman on a quest to find out the truth about her family, a mysterious Victorian authoress, a book of dark fairytales and a long-hidden secret - The Forgotten Garden is another addictive and compulsively readable romantic mystery from Kate Morton, author of the international bestseller The Shifting Fog.

In 1930, at her twenty-first birthday party, Nell O'Connor learns the devastating story of an abandoned little girl, found alone on a passenger ship bound for Australia on the eve of the First World War.

Forty-five years later, she embarks upon a search for the truth that leads her to the windswept Cornish coast and the strange and beautiful Blackhurst Manor.

Nell's grand-daughter, Cassandra, thought she knew her grandmother well, but when Nell dies in 2005, Cassandra comes into an unexpected inheritance. Cliff Cottage and its forgotten garden are notorious amongst the Cornish locals for the secrets they hold, and it is here that Cassandra will finally uncover the truth about the century-old mystery of a little girl lost.

A captivating and atmospheric story of secrets, family and memory from the international bestselling author Kate Morton.

Kate Morton

About the Author


Kate Morton was born in South Australia and, as a child, moved with her family many times before they settled, finally, on Tamborine Mountain in south-east Queensland. There she attended a tiny country school and spent much of her childhood inventing and playing games of make-believe with her two sisters.

Kate fell avidly in love with books very early. Her favourites were those by Enid Blyton. It was a love deeply felt, for it is still mysteries and secrets that dance around the edges of Kate's mind, keeping her awake deep into the night, turning or typing pages.

When she finished school, Kate studied and earned a Licentiate in Speech and Drama from Trinity College London. After an ill-fated attempt to do something sensible and obtain an Arts/Law degree, she went on to complete a summer Shakespeare course at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and for some time believed her future lay in theatre.

Until one day she realised that it wasn't performing she was in love with. It was words and stories.

Kate began writing in earnest and completed two full-length manuscripts (which lie deep and determinedly within a bottom drawer) before settling finally into the story that would become The House at Riverton (The Shifting Fog). Meanwhile, Kate graduated from the University of Queensland with First Class Honours in English Literature and took up a scholarship to complete a Masters degree focusing on tragedy in Victorian literature.

The House at Riverton was a Sunday Times #1 bestseller in the UK in 2007 and a New York Times bestseller in 2008. The Shifting Fog won General Fiction Book of the Year at the 2007 Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA), and The House at Riverton was nominated for Most Popular Book at the British Book Awards in 2008.

Her second book, The Forgotten Garden, was a #1 bestseller in Australia and Spain, and a Sunday Times #1 bestseller in the UK in 2008. It won General Fiction Book of the Year at the 2009 Australian Book Industry Awards and was a New York Times bestseller in 2009.

The Distant Hours was an international bestseller in 2010 and won General Fiction Book of the Year at the 2011 ABIAs.

The Secret Keeper was a New York Times bestseller and has won a number of other awards and accolades including the 2013 ABIA for General Fiction Book of the Year and The Courier-Mail's People's Choice Queensland Book of the Year.

The Lake House, published in 2015, was a New York Times bestseller and a #1 bestseller in Canada and Australia. It will be published around the world in 2016.

Kate's books are published in 39 countries and in 32 languages. She currently lives in London with her family and continues to write the sorts of books she can disappear inside.
