A brooding Irish poet. A beautiful English rebel.
A love affair that shaped history.
Willie Yeats is 23 years old in 1889, when dazzling Maud Gonne decides to recruit him in her newly adopted cause of Irish freedom–and “the troubling of his life” begins.
He spreads his dreams under her feet as they set about creating a new Ireland through poetry, politics and their shared interest in the occult. But this love affair is much more than poetic image would have you believe.
As its down-to-earth narrator Rosy Cross says: “When looked at from the woman’s side of the bedsheet, most tales take a turning, and this one more than most.” While Yeats forges a poetic career out of their relationship, Gonne, his apparently unattainable muse, has other goals. And a secret she fears to share, even with him.
Can their relationship survive the turmoil–or will intrigue tear them apart?
Packed with emotional twists and surprises, Her Secret Rose is the first book in a series that brings to life 1890s Dublin, London and Paris, while exposing untold truths about one of history’s most charismatic love affairs. If you're a fan of Poldark, then you’ll love this haunting and moving novel.
