The Rose Stone

The Rose Stone

(1985)
A novel by

 
'Take care what you do, Anna. Take care that the things you want are worth what you may have to pay for them. What others may have to pay. And remember - that the cost is not always immediately apparent.' This is Josef Rose's advice to his daughter Anna on the eve of her marriage to Joss Anatov......

The Rose Stone - a diamond, acquired in betrayal and blood, upon which the Rose family's fortunes were founded and whose price, it seems, is still to be paid. Two families are bound together through the conflicting emotions of love and hatred from the day in 1875 when Josef Rosenberg escapes death from a Cossack attack in Kiev with Tanya, the young daughter of his best friend Boris Anatov. Escaping to a new life in England his skill as a diamond cutter - and in particular as the one who cut the famed Rose Stone - are the foundation of success and security. But the stone is not satisfied. Taken in blood it will have blood in return: as those who benefited from it, however innocently, will discover.
