Musch's vibrant characters have with their own individual traits. Jesi and Cori, identical twins, are as different as any two people could be. I love Paul, the lumber camp preacher, who rescues Jesi and provides for her. Jamie endeared me to him with his love for Cori in the face of her criticism. The Beaumont family members are all loveable.
The story set in Wisconsin's lumber and railroading days is filled with surprises and plot twists taking unexpected turns that the reader doesn't expect. More than once, I found myself wiping at my tears. This novel deserves five stars.
Lainey and Zane's twin daughters are eighteen and feeling it. They've let a man come between them, and everyone loses when Jesi confesses to Cori that she made the hugest mistake of her life out of desire for the man Cori thought she would marry. But just like the rose that is so dark-colored it's called black, it's still a rose, and eventually the girls must hit the blackest depths before crawling back into the light.
The first book of the series showcased the early years of Wisconsin's lumber barons; the second and third deal with the results of those years - the terrible fire that consumed Peshtigo in 1871, and the bawdy towns and services to the roughneck lumbermen: Hayward, Hurley, and Hell... Jesi runs away and finds herself in both Hurley and hell before a camp preacher and his sister pick her up and dust her off.
At home, Cori is reunited with a family friend who encourages her to make something of herself. She goes to college to become a teacher, but she isn't done re-creating herself yet. There's a lot of self-examination to be done, and Jamie painfully helps her do that.
While the first two books were pinned on defining events in Wisconsin history, The Black Rose brings to light some of the more tawdry aspects of history. A few formatting issues and editing glitches didn't detract much from my Kindle version. Told in the richest detail, period-perfect as always, beautifully written, The Black Rose is a fitting end to the series. I'm sad to see it go.
Highly recommended for Wisconsin history lovers.
