Rose Between Two Thorns

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

When Rosie wakes up she finds herself part of a staunch Puritan family, in 1649 on the day before King Charles is due to be put to death. The country is in the midst of a civil war and friends and neighbours have become enemies as they take opposing sides. Can Rosie help lovers David and Marie stay together, yet stay out of danger herself until she can return safely to the present day?

This is the final story in the Timepiece series where Rosie goes back in time to play her part in various important periods of history. Once again this dyslexia-friendly book combines an exciting story with an historical insight into the past. An accessible and enjoyable read that will appeal particularly to pre-teen and teenage girls.
