"When Rose's mother dies, her only comfort is the exquisite rose garden her mother left behind. The purple blossoms serve as an assurance of her mother's love. But Rose is dealt a second blow when her father dies and his greedy widow, Ombrine, and her daughter, Desirée, move in and take over the manor in true Cinderella fashion. Fate has been cruel to Ombrine and Desirée, too. So despite their harsh ways, Rose has compassion. But these feelings are bitterly tested when, in a rage, Ombrine tears out the garden. Rose nearly gives up all hope -- until a chance meeting with the king. Happiness might be within her reach, but first she must prevail over Ombrine. And then she must determine if she has the courage to love"--Page 4 of cover.

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love is as deep. The more I give it to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite. (William Shakespeare)

"You are loved." the voices insisted. "No, I was loved." she said bitterly.

Captain_America Aug 30, 2011

“You loved boldly and freely in the face of certain death. Your love is true and you know that it is true. You know love for what it is and what it is not. You are truly the Best Beloved of the goddess, and I charge you, Rose Marchand, to accept nothing less than true love from one who would walk in the garden with you. For while men themselves may be imperfect, they can strive to love you perfectly. When one struggles to love in this way, one is a lover worthy of you. Else, you must bid him goodbye.”

A fun story. I've never read or heard of the original, but this was interesting and had good characters and motives.
