Lynn Kurland is an expert in the creation of the classic family saga. So believable are her characters and stories that one could almost believe that time travel is possible. This story pulled me in so quickly it was like getting sucked into a time vortex myself. I instantly fell for Patrick. Dressed all in black most of the time he presents a formidable character until one gets to know him. That's when we realize there's softer side to this man. As quickly as I grew to like Patrick I could empathize with Madelyn just as easily. She was put through the ringer with Bentley, all for love. Love is blind and Madelyn certainly was to what Bentley was doing to her for so long. But she's a strong woman and not one to let anyone get the best of her twice.
Bentley Douglas Taylor III was put into the literary world to dislike. He's pompous, arrogant, conceited, a user and inane - all the characteristics in the anti-hero, the kind of guy we love to hate. Patrick's brother and other family members all exhibit the kind of moral fibre that I expect in men of distinction. While this is definitely Patrick's story (many of the other's have had theirs) they show up at the right minute to lend a hand when necessary. Additionally, ghosts from the past show up with messages for Patrick and Madelyn, even though they're not understood immediately. Without them through this story would definitely have an unexplainable gap.
A Garden In The Rain is a remarkable tapestry of color, light and texture so rich that after the last page is turned the entire experience will leave the reader feeling as if they've travelled with Patrick and Madelyn through Scotland, back in time and into love.
Is Ms Kurland going places? You bet! She's leading the pack.

Personally I wouldn't think this is one of Kurlands best.

Patrick is the sort of hero we have come to expect from kurland but for me the heroine was a total let down. Exactly how many times can you cry? I'm not talking crying at traumatic moments such as being taken prisoner- at this point she seemed quite tough- but the rest of the time spent with Patrick the woman needed gutters installed!
I kept wondering why he didn't walk away and find someone else. She wasn't at all likeable. Very much a wet ninny.
And why did she only own 'power suits'? What did she wear on her days off or in the evenings? Seemed a bit odd to me that.

Loved the ghosts. Brilliant and funny. A couple of proper pantomime baddies - boo and hiss. A lovely romp through history but please couldn't we have a less wet heroine?

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite books 29 Jan. 2015
By Margaret A. Pogin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read and re-read this book many times now. I still enjoy it and turn to read it again when I get restless of reading poorly written books. Lynn Kurland's characters, plot development, and romance are first rate! I love her humor which shows through the characters. I also love the romance development and the fact the book is a clean read, which is another thing high on my list of what constitutes a great read. The romance develops naturally and is not forced or artificial just to sell a book. A Garden in the Rain is my favorite Kurland's book, but I suspect that is true because it was my first read of all her books. I gobbled up the rest of her series quickly. Who needs to sleep at night when there is such a great book to read?
5.0 out of 5 stars Patrick Macleod and Madelyn Phillips 3 Nov. 2016
By Moon Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story follows Laird Jamie's brother Patrick, who had vanished but actually preceded Jamie into the future years prior. Patrick had been married but lost his wife. When he meets Madelyn, she's on a trip to Scotland after a breakup with her fiance. Both are trailing baggage and crazy people. Excellent plot and time travel, although the medieval Scottish period is quite brutal and the reasons for the Macleod and Ferguson animosity are partially revealed.
4.0 out of 5 stars Time travel and ghosts! 28 Sept. 2015

I love Lynn Kurland's books and am a fan of series where you get to visit characters from previous books, and she has some really great characters. There are some places that drag on a bit but otherwise wonderful book. I loved the ghosts.
3.0 out of 5 stars Loved the story just a bit wordy for my taste 15 Jan. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved the story, characters and ending, it had great twists in it that were unexpected. But I feel like the same story could have been told by leaving done parts out. It was a little wordy for my taste, sometimes there were also things I would have to re read several times before grasping what she meant. The other thing that bothered me was the development of their relationship. I feel like it should have been more detailed in the beginning and not so much at the end because it made their relationship less believable at first.
