Amazon reviewer CoffeeGurl says "The Winter Rose, like The Tea Rose, is a beautiful family saga full of historical references and painful struggles. The backdrop of the London slums is the most appealing feature in this book. We read plenty of books about the rich and beautiful, the nobility and gentry, but very few about people who grow up poor and have to turn to a life of crime in order to survive. Sid Malone is a compelling character. He has depth, spirit and the survival instincts necessary to move in his circle. India is naïve, idealistic and independent. She wants to pursue her medical career the way she sees fit, even if her parents and fiancé disagree with her choices. The story hits the mark with the parallels between the slumdogs and the privileged. Are they so very different, especially when they are both as ruthless? If you've read The Tea Rose, you MUST read this one. Jennifer Donnelly is a wonderful author. I also loved A Northern Light and look forward to reading all future work. The one downside is that the novel feels a little too long at times, not quite as addictive as its predecessor, but that's no deal-breaker by a long shot. Trust me, you'll love this."
