Rose Gold Watts believed she was sick for eighteen years.
She thought she needed the feeding tube, the surgeries, the wheelchair . . .
Turns out her mother, Patty, is just a really good liar.
Now after 5 years in prison, Patty comes home, and it seems their relationship is finally on the mend.
But is Rose Gold still the easily pliable young girl she once was?
And is Patty still as keen on settling an old score?
Stephanie Wrobel was born and grew up in the suburbs of Chicago in the United States. A voracious reader as a child and a later fascination with language led to work as a copywriter and, after a move to the UK in 2014, she set to work writing The Recovery of Rose Gold. She now lives in London where she writes full-time.
WHAT DID I THINK?
Something a bit different here and I really enjoyed it, it brings to mind about can people really change? The character of Rose was very deep but it didn’t show that which I thought was down to the brilliant writing. I also thought this would make a good TV film.
