The Rose Variations (2009)
Marisha Chamberlain
"Rose MacGregor is my kind of heroine-funny and serious, dreamy but brutally practical when it's called for; someone blissfully inconsistent-like the rest of us. What more can one ask than that a novel presents us with a unique personality such as Rose's?"
