Although this book was released last year, somehow it had slipped past me. HER SECRET ROSE by Orna Ross gives us a fictionalised biography of the legendary relationship between Maud Gonne and W.B. Yeats. Having learned about these two larger than life characters throughout school, I was fascinated by the premise of this story. Told through the eyes of a domestic servant, Rosie Cross, we get to see past their public personas of political activist and poet. Throughout this book, I felt that I got to know them as people - their hopes, their fears, and their inadequacies and doubts. This is a tale about rebellion, politics, and intrigue, mixed throughout with their passion for Ireland and for literature. Snippets of Yeats' poetry is woven through the novel which really added to the mood and understanding of the book overall. HER SECRET ROSE by Orna Ross is a beautifully crafted story and I am so glad that I came across it. I look forward to the next instalment in the series titled A CHILD DANCING.
