Description

Rose is unsettled, curious, and bored. Life in a hippie commune is her parent's dream come true, not hers. She doesn't share their passion for living off the land, nor does she enjoy the isolation that is thrust upon her. When she convinces them to send her to public school in the nearby town, a new world opens up to her.

As she pursues her education, Rose chooses a different path, leaving her parents heartbroken at her insistence they are hiding something from her. She's convinced her father isn't the man her mother married.

Although she finds love far away from her roots and upbringing, her wounds only deepen as she keeps her family at arm's length. What she loses during those years can only be retrieved with her understanding that "a Rose by any other name is still a Rose."

Review quote

Reader's Favorite - 5-STAR Review

"... The story is built around the central theme of family and the writing beautifully showcases the dynamics within Rose's family. The prose is tight, punctuated by focused scenes, well-crafted dialogues, and descriptions that add depth to the emotional aspects of the narrative. Alexa Kingaard makes characters come alive in the pages of this novel and weaves a story that entertains immensely."

Vanessa J. - Beta/ARC Reader

"Alexa Kingaard has done it again! What a beautiful story of mothers and daughters. I loved so many parts and was amazed at how she grabbed me once again and gave the world a touching story for every generation."
