The Winter Rose

I completed The Winter Rose and I really miss all the characters already! Jennifer Donnelly certainly has a way of weaving wonderful stories in one book. I can't wait for the 3rd book in the trilogy to come out! I read The Tea Rose, the first book in this trilogy and it was also wonderful. If you like historical fiction this one's for you! I have e-mailed Jennifer Donnelly a few times and she has always answered me back. She seems to be a very nice person and what a talented writer.


  1. Hi Sherri,
    Congrats on your new blog!
    It looks great. I am thinking of starting a blog and you make it look easy! I am also reading The Winter Rose and after the recap on page 66 I am enjoying it much more.
    The beginning was a slow start for me. I stuck with it because I loved The Tea Rose.


  2. Hi Sherri - Welcome to blogland! I have THE WINTER ROSE sitting on my bookshelf. I'm going to read it for a challenge in a couple of months - if I can hold out that long!

  3. Hi Sherri, you're making me consider the idea of starting a blog. I mean, you are so busy, I think if you can manage it I should be able to!

  4. Hi there :-)

    Welcome to Bloggerland - Have FUN with it!!

  5. Thanks for the review Sherri, I had the Winter Rose on my 'to read' list and did not realise there was a first book! So now I will also add this to my Amazon list :-)

  6. Love the pictures Sherri, the blog is looking great!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
