This was a great book, Tess Gerritsen, as always does a great job of giving you all of the details needed to paint the picture of the settings and characters. Some parts seemed to slow down for a bit but keeps the reader wanting to keep turning pages. Bounces back between the Present Day and the 1800's. I enjoyed it very much.

Like everyone else, I agree that this book is not the usual Tess Gerritsen style. Dr Maura Isles makes a brief appearance, but this book falls away from Gerritsen's medical thriller style that initially drew me to her books. Having been compared to Robin Cook and Michael Palmer-this book shows that she can extend past her medical thriller genre and write a historical based book. I found myself stuck in bed, reading when I should have been asleep, unable to put the book down and reacting to the appropriate scenes with fear, nausea and sadness. Excellent break from her usual books!

This is the first Gerritsen I've read but it won't be the last! I flew through it in a single day. Romance plus suspense plus history--I could ask for nothing more. With Oliver Wendell Holmes as a character (a man I know very little about), I am now intrigued enough to read more about him and his life. To me, an author who leaves me thirsting for more is a great writer and Ms. Gerritsen accomplished that quite easily.

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It is certainly NOT the Tess Gerritsen I am used to reading! Was it good? Heck yeah! I think I am just used to the gore/thrill factor that is so prevelant in her books. This book was more in line with Historical Fiction. But if you are excpecting the usual TG story (as I was)--you'll be in for a suprise. A pleasant suprise, but a suprise none-the-less.

What a wonderful surprise. This was the first book I have read by Tess Gerritsen and Im very pleased I did..This book was wonderfully written, the characters were believable and well written. I really enjoyed the plot and the way the whole story came together. I was sad when it came to the end. 400 some pages and I wanted more. I am excited to read more of this author. I really recommend this book for someone who enjoys a good suspense and a fast read.

This is one of Tess Gerritsen best novels ever. I simply could not put it down. I highly recommend The Bone Garden. I could tell that Tess put in a lot of research in writing this book.

This is a compelling mystery that jumps back and forth between the present and the past. The murders are violent and gruesome. There's a very realistic depiction of childbirth in the days of childbed fever, descriptions of human dissection by medical students, and a subtle overlay of reincarnation. It's not my personal preference, but if you like realistic descriptions of this sort, it's very good at that.

What an interesting story. Set in present day with flashbacks to a different time. I enjoyed the story and the narrator. The was my first Tess Gerritsen book, after listening to it I went on to read the rest of her novels.
