For anyone losing hope, The Road to Roses is a transformative guide to finding the grit to keep going in difficult times. Whether your heart has been broken, your dream put on hold, or your character placed under pressure, Desiree Hartsock Siegfried's story will give you courage to stay strong in your own journey.

Desiree's debut on the world stage meant facing the critics, experiencing viewers judging her every word and action, and dealing with the devastation of a very public breakup. But what the world didn't know until now was the comeback journey that followed. By telling her experience of starring on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and later becoming an entrepreneur and bridal designer, Desiree shares her lessons on:

  • Fully trusting God with your future even when you don't understand the purpose of the pain
  • Seeing who you really are with faith, confidence, and self-love
  • Always failing forward and trusting that despite the external pressures, God's love endures
  • Staying open to love and trust even through the ache of heartbreak, loneliness, and criticism

This rivetingly honest book shows how Desiree found her resilience and love after all--and you can too.
