I was hooked straight away with the story of Rose and her daughter Maddie who have run away to escape their old life to a place Rose has dreamt about since before the birth Maddie .. to find a special person who, many years ago showed her warmth and kindness. She finds him and so much more and I just loved reading how everything unfolds .. not always to plan.
Dearest Rose is a wonderful, wonderful book. It was an effortlessly listen and I was completely swept up in Rose’s story. I just couldn’t put it down
.... and my first book by Rowan Coleman. I started out just listening in the car when driving and then got hooked so listened when cooking and even when getting dressed in the morning. A lovely story.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book is intelligent and enjoyable. It deals with a delicate subject (domestic abuse) but it is not a heavy read. The character are well developed and the reader gets a real insight of the situation and the reactions (sometimes difficult to understand from an outsider point of view) of how domestic violence can settled itself in a couple. But it is first and foremost the story of a person who gets herself out of this vicious cycle and rebuild herself without never be cheesy. It is an excellent read and a good balance between serious matters and good reading material. The performance by Anne Dover is perfect, as usual.
