5 Star Review

An Indie Review.

From the opening pages of “Bess’s Magical Garden” I knew it would be different from the books I’ve been reading lately and I was right! I loved how M.E. Hembroff writes in a way that has a more ‘classic’ feel, as opposed to modern day…she sets the scenes and characterizations in a skillful way that not only draws us right in, but creates great visualizations and elicits emotional investments. I truly cared about Bess’s life and her struggles to overcome not only her ill health, but losing her father and moving and leaving behind her best friend Megan as well. We get great insight into Bess’s mind with her letters and diary entries, and I was so happy with the ending. And great sketches too! Recommend for ages 10 and older. (5 stars)

About mhembroff

I am the author of Bess's Magical Garden, a middle grade novel and picture book Gramma Mouse Tells a Story. I am the member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Writers Guild of Alberta and Rave Reviews Book Club. My series The Ghostly Encounters and other short stories can be found on https://www.channillo.com, listed in the short story section. I have been an avid reader since early childhood and has always been imaginative. It wasn't until my children were growing up that I started taking writing classes and put my creations onto paper. When I'm not writing I like to paint, draw, work in the garden and spend time with my pets and family.
