A Top 50 Amazon Bestseller in three categories, THE WILD ROSES is the sweeping tale of three women who find themselves caught up in a swashbuckling adventure of high action, comedy and romance to save the king and country. Within months of each other, King Louis XIII, Cardinal Richelieu, and the powerful Queen Mother Marie de Medici all died, leaving France of 1648 in the hands of a Child King. The result is a power vacuum, from which aristocrats hope to plunge the nation into civil war, which could determine the balance of power in Europe forever. A plot by the leader of the aristocrats has been set in motion, kidnapping the young king, to force the royal family to abdicate. Near-helpless, the Queen Regent and her Chief Minister Cardinal Jules Mazarin try to stave off the threat, but with little success. And so, as the life of France begins to break down, lawlessness in the streets breaks out. In the midst of this turmoil, three young women – unaware of one another – have each suddenly been forced from home to face their own steep hurdles alone that have changed their lives. And though they don’t know it, those separate lives will soon entwine with one another, and the destiny of France.

THE WILD ROSES is a wild ride! What more could a reader want, a swift,
enthralling tale of three beautiful women who are more than able with
swords, wrapped in a deliciously written story of intrigue and revenge.
Robert Elisberg pens with breath-taking pace and great humor which only adds
to the wonderful story he's created, and most especially to these
unforgettable characters, both fictitious and real, who jump off the page
and into your heart. You will not want to put this book down. There's
only one question after you finish: how fast can Mr. Elisberg write a sequel
because we want more!
--Bart Baker, author “Honeymoon with Harry,” “What Remains”
This action-packed novel falls under the "why didn't I think of that?"
heading. Not only is the premise extremely clever, but the vivid characters
combined with Mr. Elisberg's crackerjack writing style and trademark humor
makes it tough to put this book down even for a bathroom break. I can't
wait to see the movie.
-- Rob Hedden, screenwriter, “Clockstoppers”
