Overview

Rosie by Anne Lamott

From the New York Times bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow; Small Mercies; and Stitches, a wise and witty novel about motherhood. Look out for Anne's next book, Hallelujah Anyway, coming in 2017.

In Anne Lamott’s wise and witty novel, the growing pains of motherhood are portrayed with rare humor and honesty. If Elizabeth Ferguson had her way, she’d spend her days savoring good books, cooking great meals, and waiting for the love of her life to walk in the door. But it’s not a man she’s waiting for, it’s her daughter, Rosie—her wild-haired, smart-mouthed, and wise-beyond-her-years alter ego. With Rosie around, the days aren’t quite so long, but Elizabeth can’t keep the realities of the world at bay, and try as she might, she can’t shield Rosie from its dangers or mysteries. As Rosie grows older and more curious, Elizabeth must find a way to nurture her extraordinary daughter—even if it means growing up herself.

If you can get through the first 200 pages without throwing it out the window or tearing it to shreads - the story finally becomes heart warming and loving. If you like reading about children in unhealthy home environments, sex, drugs, alcoholism and enjoy being depressed then this is the book for you. If you prefer to walk away from your reading experience with a feeling of pleasure, insightfulness and inspiration - then stay clear. Anne Lamott shoves down your throat for 200 pages neglect, selfishness, a lack of commitment and direction and a mother's misguided sense of love and devotion to her child.
