Disappointed in The Humming Room

The Humming RoomThe Humming Room by Ellen Potter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book states it is inspired by “The Secret Garden”, one of my all time favorite children’s literature books. It is in fact almost a direct copy. I expected a little more variation in the story. Bringing the story into a newer setting was the extent of the variation. It did have some quality prose and I eventually warmed up to the characters. But it felt like by the time I had met all the characters and grew attached, the author quickly wrapped the story up.
I had seen some reviews that referred to “The Queen of Hearts” as a companion read about TB sanitariums. Honestly, I enjoyed “The Queen of Hearts” from a historical fiction point of view far more than this book.
