Book 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 life journey takes you through 1930s Paris and its underground organizations, a British whodunit flavored for Downton Abbey fans, Hitler's Blitz, 1950s Chicago and even exotic Madagascar. Join them in their Walk to Paradise Garden.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rewarding story. 6 Jun. 2012
By Marj
I am pleased that I bought this book as a real book rather than as a mere ebook. It is one to savour - a most rewarding read.
The story covers the lives of the Armitage family from the time of the first world war to 2001 - the twin towers tragedy. They are philanthropists, starting with a quite small orphanage, and eventually expanding to schools in third world countries.
There are good times and bad, and there are tragedies - everyone has their tragedy, and John And Evelyn Armitage are no exception. Near to the very last page are some words by Evelyn about teaching children to be resiliant. She uses the example of making a garden - that when a storm comes along and destroys it, then one starts again, that in this life, one needs to be resiliant. Wise words from the character Evelyn, and from the author, John Campbell.
5 stars for this book.

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.
