Another Book Review! Children In The Garden - Great Story!!

Dear Friends in Blogland,  I promised you another book review HERE,  and I haven't forgotten! I just got a little side-tracked and didn't get around to it as  quickly as I had planned! I finished the wonderful little book Children In The Garden

this past week...and I must say, it was just as much fun as its predecessor, A Trip, A Tryst, and a Terror

written by my blogging friend Martha Jane Orlando.

In this fun and exciting sequel, young Davy is discovering more and more about the mysteries of life in "The Glade", where his new friend Grey, "True Squirrel of the Old Ones" leads Davy on new adventures that only Davy and Grey and the other members of the "Old Ones" can see and hear.  There is something for everyone here...danger, imagination, mystery, and action..but even more...we see Davy growing in faith and maturity and love for his family and friends...and most especially in his relationship with his step-father...which needed this supernatural intervention.

This little book would appeal to boys and girls as well as their parents and grandparents...it makes for great summer reading (or any time or season!)  It's been a long time since I was a kid...but not so long that I can't enjoy this enchanting journey along with the "Children in the Garden".  One quote that has remained with me from this story is this:

"I think it is this place that reawakens the child in all of us..."

And who couldn't enjoy being reawakened to the joy of being a child again?

And because  Children in the Garden also ended with some unanswered questions and wondering what on earth will happen next...I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Book #3, The Moment of Truth, which hopefully will be arriving in the mail from Amazon.com soon!!!

Again, my thanks to Martha Jane Orlando, for sharing her delightful stories with me! I hope you all will enjoy these great adventures as well!!


  1. Oh, Pamela, once again I'm honored and humbled by your wonderful review here! And I'm so glad you picked up on that quote and included it in your post. No matter how old we get, we must always remember to nurture that inner child within us. It's what keeps us young and fills us with unending hope.
    Thank you, dear friend, from the bottom of my heart! And I guarantee, you will love The Moment of Truth, too!
    Blessings always!

    1. Thank you Martha! I can't wait to get it!! These cliff hanger endings are keeping me in suspense!!

  2. Ooh...this sounds intriguing!

  3. Pam, this is a beautiful review of a wonderful book (and series). Be ready to order the next book (after you get done with book #3).


  4. These books sound so interesting, thanks for the reviews!

  5. Very interesting review. I love the quote.
