Rose Pritchard is looking for a second chance and to escape from a deeply unhappy marriage. A few years ago a chance encounter with a kind stranger had given Rose hope and only now after all this time had Rose found the courage to make a move and take the huge step of breaking free from her life.
The stranger a man called Frasier McCleod had given Rose nothing more than a picture postcard with a small village in Cumbria called Millthwaite on it, this is Roses only clue to finding the kind stranger. So along with her seven year old daughter Maddie, she arrives at a B&B in the village, putting all hope on a letter and kind words from a stranger for a chance of happiness.
Is Rose just chasing a dream?
Dearest Rose is a truly, touching and remarkable story. I really like it when you are reading a book and the story plays out in your minds-eye like you are watching a film and that is what is one of the things that is just great about this story. The story will draw you in from the very beginning and as the story reveals more about the leading character Rose, you just cannot put the book down. The storyline is very well written and the subject covered in this book is handled very sensitively and true to life. It is great to start of the New Year with such a brilliant book and I will look forward to reading more books by Rowan Coleman.
Rowan Coleman worked in bookselling and then publishing for seven years during which time she wrote her first novel, Growing up Twice, published in 2002. She left to write her second novel, After Ever After and now lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and two children. Dearest Rose is her tenth novel.
