Rose möchte tanzen, doch bevor sie diesen Traum überhaupt erahnt, trifft sie unvorbereitet ein harter Schicksalsschlag, der sie in die Hände eines verbitterten Menschen treibt. Sie setzt alles daran, diesen und sich glücklich zu machen…


Andrews ist längst nicht mehr die Autorin, sondern ein Ghostwriter, der die persönliche Note Andrews‘ nach ihrem Tode fortführt. Er bringt neue Elemente, wie Computer und Chatrooms mit ein und wandelt so in der Neuzeit, ohne aber die kla

Rose is het 3de deel van de ''Vallende Sterren'' serie van V.C Andrews. Dit deel beviel me gelukkig beter dan zijn voorganger ''Ice'', mede doordat Rose een interessanter verhaallijn had, meer diepgang bevatte en Rose zelf een boeiender personage was om te lezen.

Rose moet en zou dansen, daar begint de synopsis mee. Uiteindelijk komt dit pas ter sprake bij de laatste 2 hoofdstukken. Het verhaal komt in het begin maar langzaam op gang, voornamelijk in het eerste hoofdstuk. Daarin wordt veel te vee

You know how some people say that 'so-and-so comes out smelling like roses', right? Not so for this book. Cinnamon and Ice were okay reads with bits of interest in them, but I don't know what book was worse, this one or Honey. This book just had such contrived twists and turns that in its own way, actually turned out to be rather predictable. So much is made of Rose's beauty, and the way she dances - the way she is described as dancing and feeling - are very cheesy and almost child-like. This bo ...more

Another wonderful story about a young woman finding her place in life after a tragedy. Rose's life wasn't always perfect but she had tow parents who loved her until one night a death shatters her world into a million pieces.

I've always loved V.C. Andrews, and will continue to read them until I've read all of them. However, I feel as if they get repetitive.
