Reading, United Kingdom (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
From author Pauline Donaldson comes a riveting historical romance that will sweep readers and the romantic at heart off their feet. Set in the 15th-century Yorkshire, Wild Rose takes place while the Wars of the Roses were still being waged.
Alice is in her early twenties and lives alone in a small, remote valley in a shepherd’s shelter and small cave. Her life changes completely when she finds a young child alone, beside the body of a woman, and takes the child home with her. Wild Rose follows her simple life, as well as Cissy’s—the child she brought home—and their friends. There are further upheavals when, after three years, Alice learns through a local priest, that an important man, who may be Cissy’s father, is searching for his child.
Deep religious faith, love, treachery, good, and evil all converge to reveal not only Cissy’s background but also Alice’s own history and future.
Wild Rose will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to [http://www.XlibrisPublishing.co.uk.
About the Author
Pauline Donaldson was brought up in the County of Yorkshire and is familiar with its rocky hills and gentler dales, where there are many castles, ruined abbeys and monasteries. She is interested in the major part that the Christian Church played in people’s lives historically. She has written poetry and stories for children, but Wild Rose is her first venture into historical or romantic novels. Writing has always been a part-time occupation. She has worked as an administrator, mainly in higher education. With her husband, three sons, and five grandchildren, family life is very important but she has a keen interest in plants and gardens, and also plays the church organ.
