Dearest Rose

(2012)
(The Runaway Wife)
A novel by

 
 
From the internationally bestselling author of Lessons in Laughing Out Loud comes a moving and heartwarming novel about a woman who escapes an abusive relationship and flees with her young daughter in search of a kind stranger she met many years earlier.

FIRST YOU LOSE YOUR WAY. THEN YOU FIND YOURSELF.

When Rose Pritchard flees her abusive husband in the middle of the night, there's only one place she can think of going. Millthwaite is a remote village deep in the Lake District, hundreds of miles from her unhappy home. It's also Rose's only link to Frasier McCleod. They met just once, long ago, but his kindness sparked a connection that has sustained her ever since.

Rose checks in to a local B&B with her young daughter, earning the scrutiny of the nosy landlady and the attention of her charming musician son. After the tumult of Rose's marriage, the beauty of the surrounding countryside restores her hope. Here she will seize a chance to reconnect with her estranged father, to watch her anxious daughter grow in confidence, and to discover whether she's been chasing a foolish fantasy in loving a man she hardly knows or following her heart's call.

Candid, moving, and unflinchingly honest, this is a powerful story of heartache and new beginnings, friendship and family. Rowan Coleman's touching and ultimately triumphant novel is a reminder that it's not what you leave behind that defines you but what you're running toward.
