The White Rose (Lone City #2)
|Series:||The Lone City|
The Selection meets The Handmaid's Tale in the epic sequel to the New York Times bestselling author Amy Ewing's The Jewel.
Violet is on the run. She's escaped the Duchess of the Lake, who bought her at auction, and the lifetime of servitude she was once resigned to.
But no matter how far Violet runs, she can't avoid the rebellion brewing just beneath the Jewel's glittering surface or the fact that she wants in on it. With Ash and a new ally by her side, Violet discovers her Auguries are more powerful than she could have ever imagined.
But is she strong enough to rise against the Jewel and everything she has ever known? And is she willing to risk the lives of everyone she cares about to find out?
