Her eighteenth birthday And as a result Alice falls into a trancelike state and refuses to speak to anyone Will she ever recove. Watching the Roses is book two in Egerton Hall Trilogy All three books are modern Fairytale retellings of three girls Megan Bella and Alice Alice s story is based on Sleeping Beauty The book is very short narrated by Alice who is locked away in her room writing in secret The family doctor has diagnosed her listlessness and silence as her being nervously exhausted Everything hinges on what happened on Alice s 18th birthday which is slowly unravelled along with her family and friends trying to wake Alice Watching the Roses is the darkest of the trilogy and works well as a standalone You don t need the other two to follow or care about Alice I liked the book and rescued it from my lost last month so I could re read it
