Specifically, "Rose Cottage" relates the "coming of awareness" of Kate Herrick, a young woman in a state of transition. Born on the wrong side of the blanket in a small northern village, she faces the future alone in London after the death of her young husband during WWII.Read more ›
It starts out well, much in the manner of her earlier suspense novels which I much admired and enjoyed (and still do, I re-read them regularly even now, 30 years since I first read one). However about 2/3 of the way through the books it peters out to a very mundane ending.
I would rate the book 4 stars for the beginning and 1-2 stars for the ending, so gave it 3 overall as an average.
A strong female lead, Kathy this time around has returned to her roots only to find a jimmied safehole and a long lost friend.
Great character chemistry and funny, too. This is a great read.
Published in 1997, this is one of Mary Stewart's final efforts. The Rose Cottage isn't quite as good as The Ivy Tree or Nine Coaches Waiting, but it is a wonderful romantic suspense novel full of the atmospheric gothic elements that I enjoy and that could be expected from this author. It is a fast read, in first-person narrative and good historical aspects centered on post-war England. The secondary characters are great. The heroine is Stewart's special brand of courageous and naïve found in all of the novels I've read so far. Davey is also Stewart's standard alpha male. The twists and turns are well woven and developed -- better than most romantic suspense novels written by today's authors. All in all, The Rose Cottage is an enjoyable read. However, I'll stick to Stewart's older efforts from now on. I still have My Brother Michael and look forward to reading it soon.

This story was a bit slow, and not quite as interesting as I had hoped it would be. Without getting into it, the storyline itself is not particularly interesting. Read morePublished 11 days ago by max
