"Once upon a Time" Is Timeless
When Rose's mother dies, her only comfort is the exquisite rose garden her
mother left behind. The purple blossoms serve as an assurance of her
mother's love. But Rose is dealt a second blow when her father dies and his
greedy widow, Ombrine, and her daughter, Desirée, move in and take over
the manor in true Cinderella fashion.
Fate has been cruel to Ombrine and Desirée, too. So despite their harsh
ways, Rose has compassion. But these feelings are bitterly tested when, in a
rage, Ombrine tears out the garden. Rose nearly gives up all hope -- until a
chance meeting with the king. Happiness might be within her reach, but first
she must prevail over Ombrine. And then she must determine if she has the
courage to love.
