Darling Rose Gold

Bookseller Recommendation

Darling Rose Gold

“An excellent audiobook listen. The narrative alternates between Rose Gold and her mother Patty. We learn about how Rose Gold's life unfolds after her mother is placed in prison for child abuse and neglect for causing Rose Gold's life of illness. Her narrative moves toward the present day where she welcomes her mother back into her life after her release from prison. Meanwhile, we hear from Patty and what she is experiencing after her release while she strives to achieve reconciliation with her estranged daughter. Neither character is particularly likeable, and they are filled with suspicion about each other's motives and actions. The tension and pacing increases as the two story lines begin to intersect raising questions about what is really going on. What is reality and when are perceptions being colored by the impact of each woman's childhood scars? Who is the victim and who is the perpetrator? This cat and mouse revenge story will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end.”

Mothers never forget. Daughters never forgive.
For the first eighteen years of her life, Rose Gold Watts believed she was seriously ill. She was allergic to everything, used a wheelchair and practically lived at the hospital. Neighbors did all they could, holding fundraisers and offering shoulders to cry on, but no matter how many doctors, tests, or surgeries, no one could figure out what was wrong with Rose Gold.

Turns out her mom, Patty Watts, was just a really good liar.

After serving five years in prison, Patty gets out with nowhere to go and begs her daughter to take her in. The entire community is shocked when Rose Gold says yes.

Patty insists all she wants is to reconcile their differences. She says she's forgiven Rose Gold for turning her in and testifying against her. But Rose Gold knows her mother. Patty Watts always settles a score.

Unfortunately for Patty, Rose Gold is no longer her weak little darling...

And she's waited such a long time for her mother to come home.

 “Dazzling, dark and utterly delicious”—J. P. Delaney, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before

“One of the most captivating and disturbing thrillers I've read this year. An astonishing debut”—Samantha Downing, USA Today bestselling author of My Lovely Wife
