The Bear & The Rose is a beautifully told fantasy weaving together Celtic Mythology and romance. From the beginning, Rhoswhen's character and insights gripped me. I was intrigued by her feelings about her purpose in Hazelfeur, her friend Nathair and the town of Hazelfeur herself. Rhoswhen struggled with her purpose in life and in the town as well as in her own life. As she discovers the truths of the forest and her heritage, Rhoswen's understanding of herself and the world changes, challenging everything she knows. The writing style is a lyrical prose creating a genuine and emotional journey full of self discovery and insight. With a fairy tale worthy romance, touches of magic and a satisfying conclusion, The Bear & The Rose is a wonderful story of hope and purpose.
