Family dramas are very relatable and readers are easily drawn to this genre because it helps people to somehow cope with whatever personal conflicts that they have in life.

Thanks for the wonderful review. It is very good and very informative. I would simply love to read this book. The plot is well developed and the characters are also brought out well. I love the fact that it is so Much into family. i read the title and began thinking of the garden of Eden. The descriptive style in the book sounds amazing.

I loved how you described the characterization that the author used in this story. Characterization is one of the most important aspects of a book, for me, and I appreciate you bringing it up. It makes me want to read this book!

Good family stories are usually made of a simple plot with multi-dimensional main and minor characters. This is worth reading.

Great review! This sounds like an engaging book full of rich characters. I like that you teased the big reveal at the end, but did not give away the character's secret. I'll definitely put this on my reading list.

The mystery unfolds with Eden as a common thread that keeps the family connected. Throughout the highs and lows of each individual story, love and family prevails. I enjoyed reading this book.

Novels with family drama are interesting to understanding the society which we live.
