The Rose on Winslow Street by Elizabeth Camden

Rose of Winslow Street, The, Elizabeth Camden, 978-0-7642-0895-9

About the Book:

In the small town of Colden, Massachusetts, Libby Sawyer leads a quiet, predictable life. Yet beneath the surface, she is haunted by a secret.

Newly arrived on American shores, Michael Dobrescu is far from predictable, and his arrival in Colden is anything but quiet. Michael's shocking claim to be the rightful owner of Libby's father's house immediately alienates him from the appalled citizens of Colden.

Despite her own outrage, Libby is unwittingly fascinated by this enigmatic man who seems equally intrigued by her. As the court's decision about the house looms and the layers of mystery surrounding Michael's past are unveiled, Libby's loyalties are tested in ways she never imagined.

My Review:

As soon as I finished The Lady of Bolton Hill, Elizabeth Camden's debut novel, I could not wait to read this book. She has easily become one of my favorite authors and I look forward to reading many more books from her in the years to come. As soon as I started The Rose on Winslow Street I was hooked. I ended up reading the book in just over 24 hours since I was that drawn into the story. Elizabeth Camden does a wonderful job at weaving together a great story filled with multi-layered characters, a captivating plot, and twists and turns. 

*I received this book from the Author and publisher in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Thanks Jen! I can't wait to get started reading this book tonight!

  2. It certainly sounds interesting and intriguing!

  3. I have just received The Rose of Winslow Street from my mail-order. We live 85 miles from a large city so I buy on-line. I have enjoyed the reviews and wanted a copy of the novel for myself! Thank you for your reference to The Lady of Bolton Hill. I will check and see if our community library has a copy. I keep a book with me I am reading and sounds like I won't be carrying Libby and Michael's stories around for long!

  4. Great review! I have both these book and just haven't gotten around to reading them yet (will I ever get caught up with my TBR pile?). I may just have to move these two up the ladder =)
