The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly

Winter Rose starts off a little slow, but once you get past the first few chapters, you are better able to follow the flow of the characters. The prologue is a little bit misleading as you assume the book will be about Lilly Walker. And though some of the first chapters are a little dry, don't give up or you will miss out on a great story of true love, love lost, heroism against all odds, passion, and greed. Not to mention some of the strongest female characters you will ever know.

Don't miss getting to know India, Fiona, Will and Ella. These women will show you what friendship, loyalty, strength, hope, compassion and family are all about. You will follow their trials and tribulations as they strive to succeed in a world that believes women should only follow the guidance of men and should not be free to think for themselves or be considered as equals. You will learn how these women struggle to succeed and surpass women's limitations in early 1900 London.

You will laugh. You will cry. And you will applaud these women and the men who love them.
