This is a beautifully written story that captures the imagination * Shropshire Star * Romantic fiction at its most captivating * Lancashire Evening Post * A strong, often nostalgic offering * Daily Express Weekend * Spellbinding storytelling * Choice Magazine * A captivating read from Lucinda Riley. Ideal for a book club * DailyMail.co.uk/Femail * Irish-born Riley is quietly becoming a huge success story * Red * I finished The Midnight Rose on the flight back, and I loved it! What an absolutely fantastic storyteller - I was immediately immersed in the story, and absolutely compelled to keep reading to the very last page. I loved the fabulously Gothic settings in the UK, with the wonderful descriptions of India alongside them . . . And all the appalling injustices of that time towards women, foreigners and people of lower class were masterfully portrayed - with the depiction of the modern world's treatment of celebrities making a really interesting counterpoint. It was just the perfect book to get lost in at an airport - the time flew by! . . . A real treat -- Katherine Webb
