The Memory Garden - Mary Rickert, M. Rickert

The Memory Garden is a book in which magical powers and incidents surround and attempt to explain an all too common disaster. Your traditional 3 witches gather after many years apart when one, Nan, is terrified that the exposition of her secret will leave her adopted teenage daughter motherless.


The difference between characters is occasionally difficult to follow, and I found myself looking back at previous pages to figure out what character was being discussed. Some of the details are interesting along the way, but the novel builds to a climax that is ultimately, less than satisfying.
