Just Read It,
This review is from: The Tea Rose (Paperback)
Oh yes,what a book this is!! I bought it because I loved Jennifer Donnelly's other novel,"A Gathering Light",and I wasn't disappointed. Once you're in a book by a story-teller like J.Donnelly,you don't want the novel to stop.
The tragedies that falls upon our strong-minded & spirited heroine,Fiona Finnegan,are unthinkable,and left me shattered,shoked and teary-eyed.....but not for long. Because Fiona won't slow down or forget her dreams because of what happened;she leaves behind the shabby streets of Whitechapel and moves to NY where she's confident she'll make her dreams come true,and she will,with the help of her faithful friends. But soon her past will catch up with her....and she'll have to deal with it,for once and for all.
I couldn't put this book down;you read it as fast as you can,and when you finish it,you're craving for more. But,thanks to reviewer M.Lugg "bookworm",we now know there's a sequel,"The Winter Rose",coming out in November (which is not soon enough)!!!!!!
