The Dark Rose

Erin Kelly

Kirkus Reviews hailed Erin Kelly’s debut novel The Poison Tree as “a richly shaded work.” Her atmospheric follow-up, The Dark Rose, follows Louisa, a 39-year-old still haunted by a tragic love affair from her youth. Seeking peace of mind, Louisa busies herself restoring an Elizabethan garden. But when she meets Paul—a 19-year-old with demons of his own—and the two become lovers, Louisa discovers that she can’t outrun the past forever. “[A] brooding story and a real ‘can’t put it down’ mystery.”—Independent (UK)
