"Wooden Rose" is a Victorian fairy tale about love, loss and betrayal, enchanted forests and ancient mythical beings. It updates every Monday.
Sisters Lillian and Nessa reside alone and care for their father, who has been ill for a year now. Nessa takes a fall out in the snow and is aided by a strange gentleman. Mr. Thorne’s charm quickly draws her to him and she finds herself in the romance she has always dreamed of. What she does not know is that the handsome stranger hides a dark secret, one that puts her and those around her at great risk.
