Product Description

Review

Praise for The Winter Rose:

"If Jennifer Donnelly doesn't watch out, she's going to get a reputation. With the publication of The Winter Rose, she proves that her first fast, fat and fun historical novel--The Tea Rose--wasn't a fluke. She's a master of pacing and plot, with enough high points scattered throughout to keep your pulse racing . . . I read the last third at near-choking speed . . . I imagine you will, too."—Washington Post Book World

Praise for The Winter Rose:

"I loved this book. It is truly seductive, hard to put down, filled with mystery, secret passions, unique locations, and a most engaging heroine . . . She captivates from the first page to the last."—Barbara Taylor Bradford, author of A Woman of Substance and Playing the Game

Praise for The Winter Rose:

"Mix Gangs of New York, Romeo and Juliet, and Oliver Twist, and get a passionate tale propelled by sophisticated plotting, cleverly disguised motives, and intriguingly entangled characters."—Booklist

Praise for The Winter Rose:

"A lush story of epic proportions . . . Donnelly peoples her book with larger-than-life characters whose tragedies and triumphs lift your heart and soul."—Romantic Times Book Review

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. Cosh on Sept. 21 2011
Format: Hardcover
Well worth the wait. If you are a lover of historical novels, this one has plenty. Set primarily in the prelude to the 1st World War in London, it also takes you to Tibet & the Himalayan Mountains. There are plenty of real people who are on the fringes of the main characters lives but made very believable by the author, you can tell she has done her research. The characters that were in the 1st 2 books are back in this one & it ties up the trilogy very well. There is lots of suspense, spying, high & low society & just enough romance. Well done JD. Looking forward to the next one!

I have read the previous books in this series and enjoy the whole series very much. The issue I have is that I like to keep my books and I am finding that the physical quality of the book is very cheap. The material that books are made of from Amazon are not made to last. You may as well order it from kindle because really all you are getting is the story.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author brings the characters to life, the detailing of the locations, etc are amazing, I felt like I was right there in the moment. I have read the trilogy and would recommend the three books to anyone who enjoys being swept away and entertained to the absolute. Thank you Jennifer Donnelly.

I very much enjoyed the three "Wild Rose" Series Books - It was great to follow the family as it grew and experienced life in the UK, America, and then back to their roots in London.
I would recommend it to others who enjoy U.K. history along with a good story line.
