A picture for the book Rose O' the River

Rose O' the River

Published in 1905, Rose O' the River, became a best-seller for Kate Douglas Wiggin. The novel is populated with charming characters, humour and a fine portrayal of rural life in Maine at the turn of the 20th century.

That Rose Wiley and Stephen Waterman are made for each other and that is all too obvious to the residents of Edgewood and Pleasant Valley. But Rose feels stifled by the small town habits and when a dashing stranger from Boston comes to time, Rose must make choice.
