It has been twelve years since a dark, murderous figure stalked the alleys and courts of Whitechapel. And yet, in the summer of 1900, East London is still poor, still brutal, still a shadow city to its western twin. Among the reformers is an idealistic young woman named India Selwyn-Jones, recently graduated from medical school. With the help of her influential fiance--Freddie Lytton, an up-and-coming Liberal MP--she works to shut down the area's opium dens that destroy both body and soul. Her selfless activities better her patients' lives and bring her immense gratification, but unfortunately, they also bring her into direct conflict with East London's ruling crime lord--Sid Malone.India is not good for business and at first, Malone wants her out. But against all odds, India and Sid fall in love. Different in nearly every way, they share one thing in common--they're both wounded souls. Their love is impossible and they know it, yet they cling to it desperately. Lytton, India's fiance, will stop at nothing to marry India and gain her family's fortune.Fractious criminal underlings and rivals conspire against Sid. When Sid is finally betrayed by one of his own, he must flee London to save his life. Mistakenly thinking him dead, India, pregnant and desperate, marries Freddie to provide a father for hers and Sid's child. India and Sid must each make a terrible sacrifice--a sacrifice that will change them both forever. One that will lead them to other lives, and other places...and perhaps--one distant, bittersweet day--back to each other.

4.0 The Winter Rose
Author: Jennifer Donnelly Series: The Tea Rose #2 Rating: 4 stars I actually enjoyed this one more than the first book in the series, The Tea Rose. The story covers a vast amount of land - California, England, Africa - so it felt epic in scope. To avoid spoilers I will just say I really enjoyed...

5.0 Man entscheidet sich nicht für die Liebe. Die Liebe wählt einen aus.
Ich dachte an den 1. Teil kann so schnell kein anderes Buch heranreichen geschweige denn fast noch besser sein, aber...... dieses Buch hat es geschafft! Der zweite Teil ist tatsächlich genau so gut wie der erste. Ich würde sagen die Geschichte wird reifer und spannender und mit den verschiedenen neu...

4.0 The Winter Rose
A sequel to the Tea Rose, this is a story that would appeal to those who enjoy this sort of epic tale of history, romance and adventure. It leaves openings for a sequel but also has a charming story arc all of it's own. It's the story of India Selwyn Jones, a doctor and aristocrat who has traded h...
