Drowning Rose | [Marika Cobbold]

Drowning Rose

It is winter in London. Eliza Cummings, a ceramics restorer at the V&A Museum, is leaving work when she receives a phone call which draws her back 25 years - to the night Rose died. But why does Rose’s father want her to visit him when they both know that he blames her for what happened to his daughter? Grief and guilt cast terrible shadows, but as this beautifully wrought story unfolds we learn that generosity, humour, and friendship can smooth over and restore even the most broken lives....

    Story
    "Conjuring Memories"
    If you could sum up Drowning Rose in three words, what would they be?

    Poignant, emotive, provoking


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sandra Cassandra, because as I read chapters written from her point of view, it increasingly reminded me of my own school years; how I did not enjoy them, was self conscious, always tried to "fit in", affected by peer pressure etc. I felt as if I was reading my own account of my youth!


    What about Annie Aldington’s performance did you like?

    Ability to enable reader to "Picture" every character, by changing her voice to suit the demeanor and personalty of each character


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Recalling past sins


    Any additional comments?

    I became thoroughly immersed in this book, re-living my own teenage years. I was completely taken in by each character, and found myself looking forward to each new contribution by the characters. Unputdownable, entertaining and excellent for escaping into!
