The Wooden Rose will take you on an emotional journey where you will feel the pain of loss and the joy of discovering friendship love and family.
In the 1880’s gypsy lad Eddie carves a token of his love from a piece of wood and gives it to his sweetheart. Through love and life, tragedy and sorrow, the wooden rose bridges the gap and brings the past into the present.
With the rose newly in her possession, Alina Webster is facing her own challenges and life changing circumstances but a chance encounter helps her to find her true path and establish herself as a professional psychic consultant based in Glasgow.
The frequent appearance of an old gypsy woman in her dreams worries Alina but as she opens herself to her abilities she begins to use her knowledge of Tarot, Runes and Numerology to investigate the reason for the old gypsy woman’s appearance and discovers a long forgotten murder mystery. In the process the rose creates a catalyst that restores love friendship but above all family to Alina’s life.
Reviews of The Wooden Rose
This was a lovely read: refreshingly different. The author leads us through a tragedy in a traditional Romany community through to its long reaching repercussions in today’s modern world. You reluctantly leave the ancient traditions of the charming rural community only to be rewarded by the twists and turns faced by our modern heroine. The characters are beautifully observed and the sentiments within are strong but never over done. I couldn’t put it down and look forward to reading more of this author’s work. From Brenda Frew
I don’t know how many of you saw the book called the wooden rose written and advertised by, Soraya on the pagan market. But I am half way through the book and although different circumstances I feel like I am reading my own emotional journey. The book is not only moving but anyone beginning the tarot I really recommend this book. Has anyone else ever thought as they began too read I have been sent this book for a reason? From Cas Smith
I have read the book a couple of months back Cas and it so well written, Soraya is an awesome writer, i could not put the book down until I finished it so I read it in a day, and like yourself i found so many coincidences with my own life’s journey and absolutely YES, i did think i had been sent the book for a reason and also a connection with Soraya too..Cant wait for the follow up. From Roz Johnston
Soraya’s latest book, The Wooden Rose, is absolutely FABULOUS. I am not giving anything away but it is so full of descriptive detail that the reader gets totally lost in it.
