Time has flown since Rose left the orphanage behind for her new family at Mr. Fountain's magical house. But when the stern Miss Fell comes to stay at the mansion, Rose can't help but notice the extra attention Miss Fell gives her. When Rose sees the flash of a face in Miss Fell's mirror-a face that's familiar and foreign at the same time-her suspicions are confirmed that Miss Fell might know more about Rose's past than she's letting on...Can a hidden picture, a silver mirror, and a timid ghost lead Rose to the truth about her family?
This was a wonderful book from start to end. It did take some time for me to get back in the swing of things with Rose and the others, but once I did, it was a constant struggle to put this book down.
The characters were wonderful and had some great depth. I especially liked the new characters that were introduced, such as Miranda, Eliza and Miss Fell. We even got to see Bella's magic put to the test in this one.
Not only were we introduced to some great new characters but we got to see the roles these characters played in Rose's past as the past was brought to light and rekindled.
I highly recommend the final installment in the Rose series as this final book brings all the books together and ties everything up nicely.
