The Time of Roses" is a great book if you're into victorian times. It is thrilling and suspenseful. Florence Alymer or Flo,the main character is a very dynamic. L.T. Meade should be greatly commended on this book. It is a great christian book that really envolves the reader. I read this book first and then "Priscilla's Promise" both are very interesting and entertaining. I really think if you are into anything envolving romance or victorian times you will thoroughly enjoy "The Time of Roses" or "Priscilla's Promise."
