Description

If Elizabeth Ferguson had her way, she'd spend her days savoring good books, cooking great meals, making fun of tedious suitors, and waiting for the love of her life to walk in the door. But it's not a man she's waiting for, it's her daughter, Rosie--her wild-haired, smart-mouthed, wise-beyond-her-years alter ego. With Rosie around, the long days aren't quite so long, the long nights easily blunted by a few too many glasses of wine. But Elizabeth can't keep the realities of the world at bay, and try as she might, she can't shield Rosie from its dangers or mystery. As Rosie grows older and more curious, Elizabeth must find a way to nurture her extraordinary daughter--even if it means growing up herself.show more
