Serier: Tea Rose Trilogy (3)
Jennifer Donnelly, author of The Tea Rose and The Winter Rose, brings her captivating trilogy to a close with The Wild Rose 1914. World War I is looming on the horizon, women are fighting for the right to vote, and global explorers are pushing the limits of endurance at the Poles and in the deserts. Into this volatile time, Jennifer Donnelly places her vivid and memorable characters: —Willa Alden, a passionate mountain climber who lost her limb while climbing Kilimanjaro with Seamus Finnegan, and who will never forgive him for saving her life; —Seamus Finnegan, a polar explorer who tries to forget Willa as he marries a beautiful young woman back home in England; —Max von Brandt, a handsome sophisticate who courts high society women, but who has a secret agenda as a German spy; —and many others. Readers who were left clamoring for more after The Winter Rose will be happy to see many characters from the previous novels continue their adventures in The Wild Rose. With myriad twists and turns, thrilling cliffhangers, and fabulous period detail and atmosphere, The Wild Rose provides a highly satisfying conclusion to an unforgettable trilogy.

Serier: Tea Rose Trilogy (2)
Every now and again, a storyteller comes along who can take us completely into her world and make us wish we never had to leave it. Jennifer Donnelly is such a writer. When India Selwyn Jones, a young woman from a noble family, graduates from the London School of Medicine for Women in 1900, her professors advise her to set up her practice in London's esteemed Harley Street. Driven and idealistic, India chooses to work in the city's East End instead, serving the desperately poor. In these grim streets, India meets-and saves the life of London's most notorious gangster, Sid Malone. A hard, wounded man, Malone is the opposite of India's aristocratic fiancé, Freddie Lytton, a rising star in the House of Commons. Though Malone represents all she despises, India finds herself unwillingly drawn ever closer to him, intrigued by his hidden, mysterious past. Though they fight hard against their feelings, India and Sid fall in love, and their unpredictable, passionate and bittersweet affair causes destruction they could never have imagined. Sweeping from London to Kenya to the wild, remote coast of California, The Winter Rose is a breathtaking return to the epic historical novel, from a masterful writer with a fresh, richly vivid, and utterly electrifying voice.
