The memorable cast of characters included: {1} Andrew as an honorable, strong-willed, but willing to bend hero, who struggled with a deeply haunted past. {2} Catherine as a determined widow, who used her intelligence to make sure that she did not fall prey to another bad marriage. {3} Hugh as a priest who was so filled with guilt, angst and loneliness that he demanded tears from the reader. {4} Michael as a fascinating neighbor, who added great depth and interest to the story. {5} Jamie as the charismatic, charming brother who added a breathe of fresh air to the story. {6} Nell as a precocious, endearing daughter who was easy to love. {7} Anne as the shy, beautiful ward of Catherine.

All in all, found *The Golden Rose*, by Denée Cody, the third book in "The Mandeville Trilogy," to be (at times) an exciting, suspenseful, romantic, emotional read. Cody very creatively, painted a picture of what could have happened to a wealthy, powerful family loyal to the king when said king is killed in battle. She realistically portrayed the bitterness and angst suffered by Andrew, a dispossessed son. The turmoil of Catherine, a widow battling against being forced into another, possibly brutal, marriage. The deep emotions that passed between Hugh and Andrew, brothers who endured war, prison and a cruel fate. The suspense of having to outwit a villain who covets their lands and titles. *The Golden Rose* is an enjoyable, interesting book, well worth reading.
