Review: Winter Rose by Rachel A. Marks

My Rating: 4 out of 5

A dark and haunting tale of a young girl trapped in Winter, longing to be free. When Rose and her sister are left to fend for themselves and an ailing mother, they must fight both nature and the darkness of the soul to survive. And perhaps, along the way, they will find the strength to love.

There are some tales told that finish up too sugar coated for their own good, and there are stories like Winter Rose that have you fixed on every word and every sentence by its powerful yet gritty writing.
The tale of Rose, her sister Becca and their mother is chilling, raw and bitter. Just like the cold winter on the mountain where they live in a cabin to fend for themselves after their drunken father abandons them. Both daughters have harrowing histories with their father, they hope he doesn't return. Ever.
Then one day Rose finds something unexpected in her animal trap and a hint of positivity suddenly shines through unlike the sun that never visits their mountain. His name is Luke.
But the harsh life the sisters lead isn't over yet. Sacrifices must be made and Rose is still haunted by her terrifying past.
This short story will capture your heart, and is a must read for anyone who enjoys American Historical stories.
