Winter's Bite

Posted on Saturday, July 23, 2016 | No Comments

Through her own recklessness, headstrong Isabella Rockwell (15), raised entirely in India in the 19th century, loses the two people she loves most in the world. Sent to England, she must recreate herself to fit in with the street children who become her family in everything but name. But when the safety of a rich new acquaintance, Alix (14), comes under threat, Isabella must look to the harsh lessons of her past. Instead of taking advantage of Alix, will Isabella put her own needs aside, and cast herself into mortal danger to save her friend? Or will she leave Alix to her fate? A fate tied up with Isabella's own. A fate which will have consequences far beyond those Isabella could ever have imagined. "Parry's descriptions are as varied as they are rich, from the scents of Abhaya's Indian healing herbs to the sounds of London's bustling streets and the opulence in the British royalty. A sizeable cast of beautifully developed, memorable characters makes solving the mystery even more deliciously puzzling, and readers will be guessing to the surprising end. Imaginative and touching; like India, a sparkling jewel in the crown." Kirkus Reviews, October 2012.
