Praise
"Tingling and affecting work"
Patricia McKillip's Winter Rose does an excellent job of presenting the fine story of one Rois, a wild and very different small-village girl who understands that marriage will be difficult, if not impossible, due to her wild ways. A stranger's arrival changes her life in this moving fantasy.
From the Publisher
Annotation Two sisters--one free spirited, the other practical--are caught in a love triangle when the handsome young lord of the manor returns, igniting passions and fulfilling a fateful curse.
Annotation 1 A woman infatuated with a mysterious man follows him into another world of magic and danger in this poetic fantasy by Patricia McKillip. Tearle Lynn killed his cruelly abusive father Nial; in return, Nial cursed Tearle and Tearle's future descendents with his dying breath. Then Tearle disappeared, never to be seen again. Years later, Rois Melior, a wild young woman who loves to roam the woods, witnesses Tearle's son Corbet Lynn seemingly shape himself out of sunlight and walk out of the trees to claim his father's land and ruined manor, Lynn Hall. Although none of the villagers can quite agree upon the precise wording of the curse and the handsome, enigmatic Corbet is naturally reticent upon the subject, Rois knows that she must discover the truth of it before it blights either herself or her beloved sister, Laurel.
First Line They said later that he rode into the village on a horse the color of buttermilk, but I saw him walk out of the wood.
Editors Note Roaming wild and barefoot in the woods that border Lynn Hall, Rois Melior meets Corbet Lynn, who has returned to rebuild the estate of his murdered grandfather, and Rois becomes obsessed with Corbet's secret past and the curse that haunts him. Reprint.
Editors Note 4 When Corbet Lynn returns home to rebuild his family's estate, his grandfather's curse is rekindled-and lures a free spirited woman from the woods that border Lynn Hall. "Weaves a dense web of desire and longing, human love and inhuman need." (Publishers Weekly) "The prose is impeccable, the story memorable, and the characters admirable." (Science Fiction Chronicle)
