Product description

About the Author

“Not all who wander are lost.” Juliet Waldron earned a B. A. in English, but has worked at jobs ranging from artist’s model to brokerage. Twenty years ago, after raising her children, she dropped out of 9-5 and began to write, imagining and researching her way into the Past. Juliet is a winner in the Independent e-Book and EPIC Award for Best Historical categories. Hand-me-Down Bride, a story based on the experiences of her German immigrant grandmother, is published by Second Wind. The author hopes to share what life has taught her about people, places, and the ups and downs of human relationships through her stories. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Waldron certainly knows her history, and the details of this book ring true to the time period and the famous historical personages involved. Yet despite its accuracy for setting, Roan Rose is ultimately a book about character. Rose and Anne and Richard are all fully formed people with their virtues and faults, their moments of great kindness and integrity, and their selfish concerns and failings. Rose walks a difficult line between friend and servant. She is often Anne's closest confidant - and is more than once Richard's lover - but both Anne and Richard do not hesitate to put her in her place when it suits their purposes. ... Rose refuses to bow down in servitude, and her spirit is not broken ... Her heart belongs to the two people who always stand above her, who will never view her as their equal, yet who can never bear to part with her company for long. When they call for her, she comes - turning her back on her own family for the sake of her beloved Anne and a great king whose tragic end we already know.
--Dianne Salerni, "We Hear the Dead," "The Caged Graves."
