The Recovery of Rose Gold
Penguin Random House Australia
Rose Gold Watts believed she was sick for eighteen years.
She thought she needed the feeding tube, the surgeries, the wheelchair . . .
Turns out her mother is a really good liar.
After five years in prison, Patty Watts is finally free. All she wants is to put old grievances behind her, reconcile with the daughter who testified against her – and care for her new infant grandson.
When Rose Gold agrees to have Patty move in, it seems their relationship is truly on the mend. And she has waited such a long time for her mother to come home.
But is she still the pliable young girl she once was? And is Patty still as keen on settling an old score?
Because if mothers never forget then daughters never forgive.
A chilling tale of obsession, reconciliation and revenge from an incredible new talent.
This one completely baffled me – right up to the last few pages and then it still had a few surprises – a great read!
This is a read that will keep you guessing, will have you shaking your head confoundedly, “how could this happen?”, will continually surprise you and you will gasp at the ending.
This is a great read.
What an interesting premise, Carol! And I do like a good look at family and family relationships. There seems especially to be something about the mother/daughter relationship, doesn’t there? So much there to explore…
And I do love an unreliable narrator Margot – and this narrative really keeps you guessing
