Five years ago, Rose Gold's mother Patty was sentenced to prison for child abuse, having systematically poisoned her daughter throughout her entire childhood. As Patty's release date approaches, against the advice of both friends and professionals, Rose Gold reaches out to Patty, seemingly to reconcile.

What a roller coaster of a ride! The reader immediately senses things are going to be messed up, but over time the book takes crazier twists and turns we never saw coming, and as with a grotesquely fascinating train wreck, I couldn't look away. A quick but disturbing vacation read.… (mais)

This is a story about revenge and retribution, one that is so dark and shockingly twisty it will make your head spin!

Rose Golds childhood was nothing but illness and hospitals, everyone believed Rose was a seriously poorly child. That is until Rose speaks up and tells the world what was really wrong with her.

Nothing!

Rose's mother, Patty Watts is convicted and sentenced to five years in prison for child abuse in the form of Munchausen by Proxy for the poisoning her daughter Rose Gold for the majority of her life. And now those five years are up.

After a reconciliation between mother and daughter Rose decideds to let her mother move in and live with her and her own son once Patty is released from prison. But after years of torture by her own mother is Rose really able to forgive her mother? Can Patty be trusted around her grandson? Is Rose Gold as innocent as people think, does she have a hidden agenda?

Rose Gold is no longer her weak little darling...And she's waited such a long time for her mother to come home.

Flipping flawlessly between past and present and told between alternating POVs, Patty and her daughter this is a fast paced read with a unique plot that throws up as many questions as it does answers and has you questioning the reliability of both narrators.

This is one seriously complicated mother-daughter relationship, both of which are completely unlikeable at times, complex, twisted and deeply flawed characters that will have you shifting sympathy from one to the other as details are revealed.

The use of the flashbacks was effective because it unravelled another layer of the plot to an already emotional roller coaster of a read. Nothing is ever black and white and things may not always be what they seem.

This would make a great book for a book club as there are so many layers to this story it will certainly give you a lot to talk about.

Dark, disturbing, compelling and utterly brilliant.

The Recovery of Rose Gold will be published on 19 March 2020 but is available for pre-order now.

Trust me, this book is worth the wait!

3.5 stars rounded up.

I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I felt like it had a really strong beginning, middle and end, but there was too much other stuff around it that I felt like detracted from my enjoyment of the book. There was also a lot left unsaid that the reader needed to fill in the blanks, which was good (she definitely respects our intelligence) but a little frustrating at times.

That being said, I really liked being confused and trying to figure out who the unnamed chapters narrator was, and I loved Jeremiah.… (mais)
