Read full description of the books Come una rosa d'inverno:



La storia inizia sulle sponde del Tamigi, è l'anno 1900: le desolate strade dei sobborghi londinesi non sono il luogo adatto per una ragazza per bene come India Selwyn Jones, una bellezza aristocratica il cui animo generoso la spinge ad abbracciare grandi ideali. Ha scelto di essere medico e, grazie all'ambiente in cui è cresciuta e alla stima dei suoi insegnanti, potrebbe esercitare la professione nei più prestigiosi ospedali della città. Ma India ha la testa dura e vuole curare coloro che ne hanno più bisogno. Proprio in questi sordidi vicoli, tra ladri, prostitute e sognatori, India si trova a dover curare, salvandogli la vita, il più famoso gangster di Londra, Sid Malone, cinico, spietato, conturbante. Malone è l'esatto contrario dell'elegante fidanzato di India, una stella nascente del Parlamento inglese. Nonostante la repulsione per un uomo che rappresenta tutto ciò che lei detesta, poco alla volta India si lascerà attrarre dalla complessa personalità del malvivente, intrigata dal suo misterioso passato. Inevitabilmente, pur cercando di resistere ai loro sentimenti, i due si ritrovano l'uno nella braccia dell'altro. È un amore appassionato, sconveniente, in cui l'estasi si alterna alla sofferenza, e che provoca distruzioni quali non avrebbero mai potuto immaginare...
