review The Last Garden Eva Hornung × 5 Download review Ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × Eva Hornung Their son Benedict returns home from boarding school Benedict is unmoored by shock severed from his past and his future Unable to be inside the house unable to speak he moves into the barn with the horses and chooks relying on the animals’ strength and the rh. This was a very powerful and moving novel about relationships The two main characters are both dealing with the legacies of their fathers but also dealing with their trustrelationship with God The allegory of seasons is used to represent the different stages of grief There is also a great deal of symbolism within the novel such as fire birth death and the fox The I think about this story the complex and layered it becomes The only thing I would have liked would be a bit context to explain the origins of this Old Germanic group of people A haunting novel about living in the present and accepting the past Thanks to Goodreads and Text for my copy of this novel
