Heartland Book Discussion

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Other Off-Site
Heartland Senior Services Center
Join library staff at Heartland Senior Services and talk about The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.

A tiny girl is abandoned on a ship headed for Australia in 1913. She is taken in by the dockmaster and his wife and raised as their own. On her twenty-first birthday, they tell her the truth, and with her sense of self shattered and very little to go on, "Nell" sets out to trace her real identity. But it is not until her granddaughter, Cassandra, takes up the search after Nell’s death that all the pieces of the puzzle are assembled. 

Provided in partnership with Ames Public Librayr and Heartland Senior Services.
