Rose in Bloom

Our rating: ***

This is the sequel to Eight Cousins. Rose is now a young woman, and learning of a whole new set of temptations and desires. Also, Rose is doing her best to encourage her cousins to be upright young men, and she is finding the job easier with some and harder with others. When what seems to be love finds Rose, will she be able to make the right decision?

Find out next time in the thrilling conclusion of . . . ! Oh, excuse me. Okay, as I was going to say, I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as Eight Cousins. (Ah-ha! you say, that explains the rating!) However, that was simply my personal opinion. Rose in Bloom is (listen carefully) a very good book. However, if you are considering reading it aloud, you should be prepared to have over nine different voices handy! It has some great parts, some good parts and a lot of just good old well-written parts. Please read it and enjoy. Although I will warn you, yes, someone dies in this story.

  1. I like this one very much, and would have rated it four or five stars.

  2. I did not care for this one I thought Eight Cousins was much better. But…(EAD THIS PART) I read this a while back and I THINK that this what I want to say about this book. I’ve found that most of Her sequels are not so well written.

  3. I just re-read this last month, and I’d forgotton how much I like it! By the time I’d finished reading one of my favorite scenes, I’m sure I was grinning like a Cheshire cat.
