Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah is a book I enjoyed reading last month. It may not be categorized as a mystery but the story is mysterious.
As children, a mother tells pieces of what seems to be a fairytale to her two daughters. The fairy tale is about peasants, a prince and the Black Knight. They have never heard the entire story.
On his deathbed, their father has their mother promise to tell them story. The story goes back 65 years and tells of the struggles of a family and a young girl during the war...."a captivating, mysterious love story that spans sixty-five years and moves from frozen, war torn Leningrad to modern-day Alaska."
It is wonderfully written. This is a book that is hard to put down because you want to know the answer to the mystery!
