Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly (Fiction Donnelly)

If you love sweeping historical romance epics (good for our summer reading program Another Time and Place), then Winter Rose is for you! India Selwyn Jones has just graduated from one of the first women’s medical colleges in late Victorian England. Instead of setting up practice in a safe, posh area, she decides to work for a clinic in the middle of London’s poorest neighborhood. It is in this neighborhood where India learns some hard lessons about life–it’s also where she meets and falls in love with Sid Malone, London’s most-wanted underground criminal. The unexpected love affair poses a problem, since India is already engaged to Freddie Lytton, an up-and-coming politician who is bent on becoming Prime Minister–and the man to put Sid Malone behind bars forever. There is much more packed into this absorbing novel, so pick it up today and get ready to be swept away. – Review by Jamie
