Amazing Story! Feb 19, 2008
This book is even better than the first one! I started reading it one evening and finished it the next morning! It was really exciting and it kept me on the edge of my seat! Although I really enjoyed the first book, I thought this one was really gripping. You must read it if you want to know what happens with Elizabeth and the doctor!
A Great Wild Rose Series Feb 16, 2008
This book was a great sequel to the Wild Rose of Lancaster. The characters conflicts were more dynamic and I found this book more exciting than the first! Reading this book made me feel satisfied but at the same time wanting more. Romantic, entertaining and thought provoking. I can't wait to read the next one!
As Good As The First Oct 31, 2007
I read this book as soon as I completed "Wild Rose of Lancaster", and I was so happy I had purchased both books at one time and could do so. When I finished book one, I was not ready to leave the characters that Mrs. Ellinger had created. This sequel was everything the first book was, and more. The story picks up where the first book left off, and I was once again drawn into the lives of these families I had grown to love. In fact, I read this book in one day -- I simply could not put it down. If you love great fiction that will have you closing the book with a smile, you can't do better than Mrs. Ellinger's "Wild Rose" series. I can't wait for her next book.

I just finished reading this book and it is as good as the first (The Wild Rose of Lancaster). Ruth Ellinger writes with such ease and grace! I can't wait for the next book about this family!
