Publisher's Summary

The Wild Rose is a part of the sweeping, multigenerational saga that began with The Tea Rose and continued with The Winter Rose.

It is London, 1914. World War I looms on the horizon, women are fighting for the right to vote, and explorers are pushing the limits of endurance in the most forbidding corners of the earth. Into this volatile time, Jennifer Donnelly places her vivid and memorable characters: Willa Alden, a passionate mountain climber who lost her leg while summiting Kilimanjaro with Seamus Finnegan and will never forgive him for saving her life; Finnegan, a polar explorer who tries to forget Willa as he marries a beautiful young schoolteacher back home in England; Max von Brandt, a handsome German sophisticate who courts high society women, but has a secret agenda in wartime London. Many other beloved characters from The Winter Rose continue their adventures in The Wild Rose as well.

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.

Amazing book, story, series - so sad it's over!

I've listened to all 3 Rose titles by Jennifer Donnelly now; I love the stories, the character development, the story telling, the drama - every last detail is engaging from front cover to back and every page in between. I've walked over 1000 miles listening to these books and I'm desperate to find something to measure up. I've never enjoyed a book so much. Thank you, Jennifer Donnelly, Jill Tanner and Audible!

Captivating

I found this 3rd book as captivating as the Tea Rose and Winter Rose . The narrator did an excellent job and made the binge listen well worth it.

Another great story.

Jennifer Donnelly comes through again. I couldn’t put it down and the performance was one of the best I’ve listened to.

Really enjoyed the trilogy.

The author is great at character development and creating engaging storylines. You can’t help but immerse into the period and become fascinated with how things are unfolding. Seeing how real events affect and influence the characters and environment of the stories lends credence to the books. I really enjoyed all three books!
