Read full description of the books:
Londra, 1914. In seguito al tragico incidente sulle vette del Kilimangiaro, l'anticonformista e caparbia scalatrice Willa Alden taglia i ponti con il proprio passato e con Seamus Finnegan, l'uomo che l'ha salvata e che a lei è unito dalla passione per le imprese più estreme. Eroe delle esplorazioni polari, Seamus cerca di rifarsi una vita a Londra, provando a dimenticare quella donna che l'aveva sedotto, mentre Willa si rifugia in un angolo remoto del Nepal da cui contemplare e fotografare le cime dell'Himalaya per la Royal Geographical Society. Finché un evento improvviso la richiama a Londra, una città in fibrillazione per le tensioni che precedono la Prima guerra mondiale, dove Max von Brandt - l'enigmatico alpinista tedesco conosciuto in Nepal da Willa - è riuscito ad affascinare i salotti dell'élite e a carpire i segreti dei più influenti uomini politici. L'inatteso incontro tra i tre darà inizio a una serie di avventure che li porterà di nuovo a viaggiare, persino in Egitto e Siria al fianco di Lawrence d'Arabia, in un vorticoso succedersi di colpi di scena e sentimenti che intrecceranno sempre più saldamente i loro destini. Esploratori, furfanti, criminali, spie e alta società. Le vette incontaminate dell'Everest, Londra e il deserto del Nord Africa.

She grew up in New York State, in Lewis and Westchester counties, and attended the University of Rochester where she majored in English Literature and European History.
Jennifer’s first novel, The Tea Rose, an epic historical novel set in London and New York in the late 19th century, was called “exquisite” by Booklist, “so much fun” by the Washington Post, a “guilty pleasure” by People and was named a Top Pick by the Romantic Times. The Rose trilogy continued with The Winter Rose and The Wild Rose.
Her second novel, A Northern Light, set in the Adirondacks of 1906, against the backdrop of an infamous murder, won the Carnegie Medal, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the Borders Original Voices Award, and was named a Printz Honor book. Described as “rich and true” by The New York Times, the book was named to the Best Book lists of The Times (London), The Irish Times, The Financial Times, Publishers Weekly, Booklist and the School Library Journal. In 2015, TIME Magazine named it one of the 100 best young adult books of all time.
Revolution was named a Best Book by Amazon, Kirkus, School Library Journal, and the Chicago Public Library, and was nominated for a Carnegie Medal. The audio edition was awarded an Odyssey Honor for Excellence.
In 2014, Jennifer teamed up with Disney to launch the bestselling Waterfire Saga, an epic series about six mermaids on a quest to rid the world of an ancient evil. The first book in the series, Deep Blue, was released in May, 2014; the second, Rogue Wave, launched in January 2015; the third, Dark Tide, came out in October 2015; and the fourth, Sea Spell, is scheduled for release in June 2016.

Jennifer worked with Disney again in 2017, when she published Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book, an original story to accompany the blockbuster Beauty and the Beast film. Lost in a Book expands on the classic tale, exploring the growing friendship between Belle and the Beast as well as Belle's ordeal within the pages of Nevermore, a magical book from which she narrowly escapes.

For this project, Jennifer joins six other authors (Candace Fleming, M.T. Anderson, Stephanie Hemphill, Deborah Hopkinson, Linda Sue Park, and Lisa Ann Sandell), each of whom will write the part of Henry or one of his wives. Donnelly is writing Anne of Cleves, Henry's fourth wife.
In September 2017, Jennifer announced a major new project with Scholastic Publishing called Stepsister, to be published in 2019. The story begins where the classic tale of Cinderella leaves off and follows her wicked stepsister Isabelle as "personifications of fate and chance battle for control of her
