Product Description

Product Description

The world goes mad in 1914. And in the chaos, on the blood-soaked fields of the Ypres Salient, young humanitarian John Armitage meets a British nurse, Evelyne Grenville, a lady with admirable courage and a secret. Could they possibly make a difference, offering solace at the Western Front? Will Evelyne's secret life bring calamity on them both?

Their ensuing philanthropic life course encounters joy, forgiveness, horrific tragedy and a special-needs boy who shows the way to recovery.

It's a ninety-year journey for the Armitages. It's a Walk to Paradise Garden.

Walk to Paradise Garden by John B. Campbell
A Review by Ginger Dawn Harman

Walk to Paradise Garden by John B. Campbell has been an absolute pleasure to read! The Novel begins on the battlefield of Ypres Salient in Belgium during World War I. The reader is introduced to main characters John Armitage and British nurse Evelyne Grenville. Immediately you might think, here we go again another historical Romance; boy falls in love with married woman, tragedy, and love endures, and so on. The title itself had me believing that this book was going to be a sappy, everybody is perfect, life is positive, and all ends harmoniously. Let's face it, isn't that the definition for paradise? However, I was completely wrong and pleasantly surprised!

First I must say that although this book is of a historical era, I believe it has a hint of romance, mystery, suspense, and is an entrancing work of literary fiction. I honestly could not stop looking up the book's historical details. Importantly, as always, when reading historical fiction, one must remember that fiction is intertwined with fact. After all, no book can be this meticulous and have characters that grasp at your heart, anger you and drive a reader to emotional boundaries! Yet, at the same time be historically accurate. Otherwise, one is reading a biography or historical text. Therefore, this is a fictional novel. Next, I found myself Googling the author, what else he written, interviews, and I had checked out his Facebook post! Who is this John B. Campbell? I felt like a literary detective. Ok, well maybe lurked... I mean, he has many pictures of himself with nice suits, lovely wife, and his comments were interesting! I admit I became riveted with this new author!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Different View of the Elysian Fields 29 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Walk to Paradise Garden belongs to that group of books worthy of the accolade "Saga" and not solely because of its length. To a degree it is reminiscent of Upstairs Downstairs with themes of joy and tribulation, grief and happiness, skulduggery and charity interwoven into a rich tapestry illustrating the lives and times of several generations of the Armitage family and the staff who cared for them.
Sown in the bloodied fields of Flanders a love germinates, thrives and blooms, eventually becoming the force behind a wonderful humanitarian drive, on a huge scale, to find and protect unfortunate children. Despite their sacrifices to achieve their altruistic aims, the family is not without their own tragedies, graphically and sympathetically described by the author, who is equally at home creating realistic, and eminently unlikable villains.

Mr John Campbell has produced a novel of epic proportions.

This book is captivating! Be prepared to become immersed in the lives of John and Evie, from their meeting in the chaos of the First World War, through ninety years of fighting for what they believe in, to the hope that's still alive, even after their death. It's a fascinating story, that deals with war, greed, jealousy and murder, and yet leaves the reader uplifted and fulfilled. Thank you, John Campbell, for such an enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paradise indeed. 2 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Walk to Paradise Garden,
By
John Campbell.

This is the story of John and Evie, who meet at the front, during the First World War. He is a stretcher bearer, she is a nurse, and as far as John's concerned, it's love at first sight.

Walk to Paradise Garden spans the years between the early twentieth century, right up to the early 21st. Along the way, the reader enters the rich tapestry of John and Evie's lives, woven with such depth and perception that one feels one can step through the pages and join them in their journey. John Campbell is a consummate writer. His prose flows and carries anyone lucky enough to come across this book into the three dimensional world he's created.
I've added it to my Kindle library and will read it again and again, knowing I will never tire of the colour, the sadness and the happiness of its characters.
