Rose House

Another GREAT book!!!! Post a comment on here, FB or e-mail me and will put your name in a drawing for this book! Post by Sept 1st!!!!

A vivid story of a private grief. A secret painting, and one woman's search for hope.

Still mourning the loss of her family in a tragic accident, Lillian Diamon finds herself drawn back to the Rose House, a quiet cottage where four years earlier she had poured out her anguish among its fragrant blossoms.

She returns to the rolling hills and lush vineyards of the Sonoma Valley in search of something she can't quite name. But then Lillian stumbles onto an unexpected discovery...

What is it? A painting, not just any painting, but one that captures every detail of her most private moment of misery, from the sorrow etched on her face to the sandals on her feet.

What kind of artist would dare to intrude on such a personal scene and how did he happen to witness Lillian's pain? As the mystery surrounding the portrait become entangled with the accident that claimed the lives of her husband and children, Lillian is forced to rethink her assumptions about what really happened that day.

Rose House explores how the brushstrokes of pain can illuminate the true beauty of life.

Tina Ann Forkner, author of Ruby Among Us, is originally from Oklahoma. She now lives with her husband and three children in Wyoming, where she serves on the Laramie County Library Foundation Board of Directors.
