or is she already too far goneThe story in itself is simply told and mostly character is she already too far goneThe story in itself is simply told and mostly character There is not much in the way of action but the story completely messes with our mind I also could not help noticing parallels regarding faith on opposite ends of the spectrum Romy s mother came from an overly strict religious household I may even classify her family as religious fanatics so it was really interesting to see some of the similarities and et many differences in regards to beliefs Also Sarah Romy s aunt in the outside world plays a really important role in the story and again the parallels are so intricately weaved into the story The ending is shocking but it also feels true to the characters and the story Definitely one of the best endings I ve read from a story of this natureThe Poison Garden is multi layered gripping and intense What a way to start the beginning of the Contruire pas pas une pyramide fraisiers (Construction pas pas t. 1) year than with a well written story that will remain on my keeper shelf Also the first book of theear to make it into my top reads for this Silent Strength (Strength, year I will definitely be purchasing all of Marwoods previous books.
