It was difficult to connect with the characters and it was confusing go back and forth between the past and the present. Normally this author writes compelling novels, but The Last Camellia couldn't keep my attention to read in its entirety.

Fantastic book. If you are looking for reading a book on mystery, the story about a flower and the ENDING, then pick this book.

Another excellent book by Sarah Jio. Easy to follow the story line as you flip from one generation to the next and back. You fall in love with the characters. Looking forward to another book by Sarah Jio.

I didn't like the characters of this novel as much as Morning Glory and The Bungalow.
