Rose Cottage
Rose Cottage | Mary Stewart
4 posts | 11 read | 9 to read
Summer, 1947. Kate Herrick, widowed in the war, returns to Rose Cottage, her childhood home, to retrieve a few family papers before the house is sold. But Rose Cottage is not the idyllic paradise she remembers from her childhood. The papers themselves are missing, and neighbours tell stories of night-time prowlers. Kate discovers that the long shadow of an old secret lies over the house, and in bringing Rose Cottage into the light she will finally be forced to confront the truth of her own past. Beyond the weedy garden with its riot of rose bushes, nothing had changed. The beck, wide here and quiet, slid past below the bridge. Willows and wild roses, cuckoo pint and king cups, and a wood pigeon crooning in the elms. And someone crossing the bridge to approach the garden gate. Someone I knew well... Mary Stewart's last novel, Rose Cottage is a classic of her writing. Featuring a sparky heroine, an exceptional eye for detail, romance, intrigue and the gentle promise of a bright future, Rose Cottage is a must-read for all fans... and everyone who loves a good story beautifully told.

Couldn't really figure out what new thing I wanted to start, so thought I might revisit this. Turns out, it's exactly what I needed this afternoon.

A mostly lovely cozy mystery with a hint of romance. Like other Mary Stewart books I‘ve read recently, this book goes down to a So-So for the dated way “Gypsies” (the Romani) are discussed.
