I've just read an interview where she talks a little bit about writing the 20th century and her next book!

Thanks for that, Diamondlil. I shall look forward to the new book being published. I loved House at Riverton. I must get round to reading The Forgotten Garden sometime soon!

I am waiting for The Forgotten Garden to come in at the library. It seems to be taking forever!

Oh, can;t wait for her third book! The first two were excellent (so much so that I ordered The Forgtten Garden last summer from Amazon UK, never mind the exchange rate. She just is that good...).

I can't wait for her third book. It cannot come soon enough! I loved The House at Riverton and The Forgotten Garden. They've both shot to the top of my favorites list.

I loved House of Riverton and I've just recently finished The Forgotten Garden which I also loved and will be on my top 10 for this year. I, too, can't wait for KM's third novel.

I really liked The Forgotten Garden; it was my best book of 2009. I was far less pleased with The House at Riverton. Haven't tried her newest yet (has it been released?) but I intend to.

It's due to be released in the UK towards the end of this month. And according to Fantastic Fiction in the US in November.

I have an ARC of her latest book at home and am very excited. I loved The House at Riverton.

Getting a "page not found" error when I try to see the interview. Maybe it was taken down?

Has anyone read Kate's latest book? I've recently bought it as I like her other books but it seem to have received a lot of bad reviews on Amazon and my friend said after 100 pages that it's pretty slow. Any comments?
