Drowning Rose

(2011)
A novel by

 

"A sharp, funny and dazzlingly clever novel ... but, don't be misled by its exuberance, there is a serious purpose at its heart - and courage in tackling one of society's most enduring myths..."
Elizabeth Buchan


Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself...

It is winter in London. Eliza Cummings, a ceramics restorer at the V&A Museum, is leaving work when she receives an unexpected phone call. Standing in the haze of the Christmas lights she hears a voice which draws her back twenty-five years - to the night Rose died. But why does Rose's father want her to visit him? Why now? And why is he killing her with kindness when they both know that he blames her for what happened to his daughter? Grief and guilt cast terrible shadows, but as this beautifully wrought story unfolds and the scene shifts from London to the fairy tale landscape of the Swedish countryside - and back in time to Eliza's school days - we learn that generosity, humour and friendship can smooth over and restore even the most broken lives, and that some secrets just can't be kept hidden...
