Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable conclusion to the Tea triliogy I really enjoyed this (as well as the other) books in this series. I found I wanted to stay up late at night to finish the book. Well written, historically believable and a riviting read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The final and third book in an absolutely wonderful saga about Strong, determined women This book starts in 1913-14 prior to the beginning of World War 1. The Wild Rose is a beautifully written book full of adventure, suspense, seduction and espionage. The Wild Rose is Willa Alden who we left in the second book of the Rose Saga, a mountaineer who loses her leg in a mountaineering accident on Mt. Everest. Willa becomes a photographer with the National Geographic Society. There is interwinding relationships, intriguing characters and an exciting journey during an import historical time. Many historical characters are mentioned in the book. Jennifer Donnelly is an excellent historical fiction writer with enough historical facts added to her wonderful stories to make them not only believable, but socially accurate. Those of you who read the previous books in the Rose Saga will be reunited with favourite characters such as Fiona Finnegan Bristow, her husband Joe Bristow, Fiona's brother Seamus Finnegan, Sid Malone and India Selwyn Jones.
