Rose Cottage, a tiny thatched dwelling in an idyllic English country setting, would appear the picture of tranquility to any passersby. But when Kate Herrick returns to her childhood home to retrieve some family papers in the summer of 1947, she uncovers a web of intrigue as tangled as the rambling roses in its garden. The papers are missing. The village is alive with gossip. Did her elderly neighbors, suspected of being witches, really see nighttime prowlers and ghosts in the cottage garden? Kate's search for the truth brings her together with many childhood friends and neighbors and leads her down a trail of family bitterness, jealousy, and revenge. She ends up discovering a long-hidden secret that will change her life dramatically--along with romance in a place she least expects. First published in 1997 and a major bestseller, Rose Cottage is, to date, the last and most mature novel from one of Britain's greatest writers.

Review quote

"For the frazzled Anglophile, the countryside-enamored reader, here's a bit of romance, light mystery, and the reassuring stability of a timeless English village--in short, another Stewart comforter. . . . Soothing as a warm brew on a cold night are Stewart's satisfying denouements--and environs." --"Kirkus Reviews"
