Format: Paperback
The Winter Rose was a great sequel to the Tea Rose. I knew that it would be a tough one to top, but the author did it! I am so glad I was able to see Fiona and Joe once more, and the addition of the new characters and the re-introduction of Charlie as Sid Malone was wonderful. Another wonderfully detailed written book by Jennifer Donnelly! Beware: This book is LONG! When I recieved it and cracked the binding for the first time and saw the 700 pages of 8 point type, I almost fainted! Well worth it though!

NOTE*** To those who are wondering about the third installment of these wonderful books, This is what Jennifer Donnelly Wrote me in March 2007:

"...Yes, the Rose books will be a trilogy, but it will be a year or two before Book Three -- The Wild Rose -- is ready. I'm just in the plannign stages now. I've a young adult title to write first, and I've got to get that one done before my YA publisher kills me. But I'm very much looking forward to revisting the Finnegans and their circle. They totally wear me out while I'm writing about them, but the minute I finish, I really miss them!..."

I think that somewhere down the line, they decided to call the american version "The Wild Rose" due to the fact that if you got to the Amazon.UK site under "The Winter Rose, it gives a link on the top of the page to the "The Wild Rose" on the U.S. amazon site. That is just a theory. Sorry, kiddos, i don't think we can expect the thrid book for a while, unfortunately...

This book was hard to put down!

After the first couple of chapters it had me.

It is a gripping tale of intrigue, murder, and loyalty, all set in London at the late 19th early 20th century.

It is the tale of a lady Dr and her struggles to be reckonised in a man's world, and a violent gangster. A tale of love and passion and struggle for survival.

A really gripping tale, there is something for everyone in this book, I highly reccommend it.

I couldn't wait to read Jennifer Donneley's - The Winter Rose (the second book in a series, first one was the The Tea Rose, which was just as brilliant!). I was not dissapointed, this book (as was the first) is brilliant, absolutely wonderful.... You actually feel as though you are living alongside the characters in the book, as Jennifer Donneley brings the characters to life and you can really get a feel of what London must have been like at the turn of the twentieth century. I would urge anybody to read this book (and The Tea Rose too) as you will not be dissappointed. I didn't want the book to end. Lets hope there will be a third book coming along soon......!

Another winner from Jennifer Donnelly. She has created a wide-ranging tale that takes us from Whitechapel to Westminster to Kilimanjaro, populated with characters we can't help but be interested in. Some of them are old friends from The Tea Rose, others are new arrivals -- but all of them have stories to tell as Donnelly lets them free upon her expertly-crafted turn-of-the-century world. Part historical drama, part romance, part adventure, part thriller -- this book has something for everyone. It sweeps you up and takes you away.

Format: Hardcover
Another brilliant book from the author of "The Tea Rose" and

"A Gathering Light".

Jennifer Donnelly uses her wonderful gifts of weaving together

the incredible love story of Sid Malone - a ruthless but

incredibly attractive gangster and India Selwyn Jones a young,

headstrong and compassionate doctor. All this plays out in

the dangerous streets of East London, where Dr. Jones is trying

to establish a clinic for the downtrodden and poor.

This is a most thoroughly researched books -- as are Jennifer

Donnelly's previous books "The Tea Rose" and "A Gathering Light"

and you just cannot put this book down, you actually live with

India and Sid and all the other well-drawn characters.

You will find familiar characters from "The Tea Rose", but the

book also stands totally on its own --- yet, read THE TEA ROSE

first and you will be so glad that at the end of that wonderful

book you will know that there is so much more fabulous reading

ahead of you with THE WINTER ROSE.

Format: Hardcover
I totally agree with the reviewers before me - when I reached the end of 'The Tea Rose' I was almost devastated and experienced a real sense of loss, as I had come to so love the characters and couldn't believe the story had come to an end. Hence my pure, unadulterated joy to learn there was to be a sequel and I raced down to my local bookstore in Sydney, Australia to be the first to pick up a copy (yippee that Australia seemed to be the Guinea Pigs of the publishing world in this case, as we received our copies before the UK *and* the USA!). My husband took one look at it and named it my new doorstop as it was so enormous (!) but every page was a joy, and I whipped through it amazingly quickly...as the others have said, you simply can't put it down. I was reading this thing while I stirred my oatmeal in the morning, as I hummed my toddler to sleep for her midday nap, as I waited outside school to collect my son, and before I went to sleep every night. My copy came everywhere with me!

I agree, too, that you don't necessarily need to have read the original to enjoy the sequel, although having done so you will appreciate so much more of why the characters behave the way they do and understand more of how the plot relates to them. I didn't think I could ever love characters as much as Fiona and Joe, but India and Sid/Charlie absolutely captured my heart.

I have to add too, Jennifer Donnelly is just amazing with her writing. Not only is this lady a true-born storyteller (I'd love to attend a dinner party at her house for the chit-chat alone!) but she also researches everything so intricately that you completely step into her world with each page...it draws you in 100%.
