The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I really enjoyed this book, loved how it jumped around eras from the early 20th century to 1975 and 2005. I read this 600 pager in a week, the story was improbable and I guessed a few of the twists but I couldn't wait to see how it was going to be all tied together. Pure escapism.
