How does she do it? No seriously. Jennifer Donnelly never fails to impress me with her mastery of storytelling. I mean wow, just wow. I think the thing I love most about her is that she doesn't stick with any one genre and she always has a strong female protag. Not some whiney, crazy, self centered, annoying, help me male I need you to save me girl.
Winter Rose is one of her earlier books, and is also the sequal to The Tea Rose, which I did not read. You also don't need to read The Tea Rose to understand this story, which I liked. Ok yeah The Winter Rose was long too, and towards the middle it started to drag a bit for me. One thing I will say is that I wish a character had gotten more of what he deserved. Man this guy was such a little shit! lol!
India was awesome and Sid was amazing, and I loved this whole story. Of course I realize that I haven't really said much about the book but here is all you need to know in five words or less:
Read anything by Jennifer Donnelly.
I promise you will not be disappointed.
