A final novel from the beloved Irish writer, Nuala O'Faolain. Best Love, Rosie, she said, ..".is the book of my years of commuting between the melancholy of Ireland and the optimism of America." Like many a modern, well-travelled woman, Rosie has lived a fascinating life, full of adventure and the pleasure of many lovers in her younger years. Now, facing the challenges of middle-age, she finds the things that defined her most --- work, love, independence --- begin to fail her. She comes home to Ireland to care for her elderly aunt Min, trapped by circumstances in sleepy Dublin. But when an opportunity arises to visit New York again, the story takes an unexpected turn... Published to rave reviews last fall in France, Best Love, Rosie became an instant bestseller in Ireland, where it was published in May 2009 to mark the first anniversary of Nuala's death. This posthumous novel is bittersweet, giving us one last look through those fierce eyes at aging, death, relationships and, as always, love.
