Now filmed as Love, Rosie.
A story about love. And how life can get in the way...

From naughty children to rebellious teenagers, Rosie and Alex have stuck by each other through thick and thin. But just as they're discovering the joys of teenage nights on the town and dating disasters, they're separated. Alex's family moves from Dublin to America - and Alex goes with them. For good.

Rosie's lost without her best friend. But on the eve of her departure to join Alex in Boston, Rosie gets news that will change her life forever - and keep her at home in Ireland.

Their magical connection sees them through the ups and downs of each other's lives but neither of them knows whether their friendship can really survive the years and miles - as well as new relationships. And at the back of Rosie's mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them out of each others' arms, but when presented with the ultimate opportunity, will they gamble everything - including their friendship - for true love?

Destiny, Alex and Rosie discover, is a funny thing and fate isn't quite done with them yet...

Our customer reviews

This is the story of Alex and Rosie who are best friends since their young age . we can see their friend ship going on over the years despite the fact that Alex had to moved to the US with his family . Rosie had a difficult life having a girl at the age of 18; she saw all her dreams going into ashes and was she confronted to the real life of a young mother. During this period, Alex moved to Harvard to become a heart doctor . One fact is they quite never lost contact with each other despite their own life and their own difficulties to deal with life . They were quite always supportive to each other and very helpful in the other's life. During all those years, they will be in touch via instant messages, letters, invitations, e-mails. So don't be surprised by the form of the book. There are many people involved in their life such as their husband and wives; Alex's brother Phil ; Rosie family: Stephanie Kevin and her parents; Rosie best friend Ruby ..But we are also involve in the story of Katie (Rosie's daughter) and Toby who is her best friend . The big question of the book is : is a friendship between a man and a woman possible without turning in a love affair? Or can it be possible to be best friend with someone who is the opposite gender without messing up our own life ? My favorite character is Rosie : we see her fighting all over the years and she never gave up for the love of her child Katie. She was really down to eath too. Alex was also a nice person such as Ruby who were always here to help Rosie . The book is really well done. First I was on the way to put it down when I saw it was only instant messages and emails but the story is so nicely written that It quickly becomes really addictive . I wanted to know what was going next , what will happen to them, what they will answer to the other one . So I kept ready until late in the night .. It's at the same time a funny by the way they talk and by some funny times and sad book : I was so involved in Rosie's life that sometimes I wanted to cry when I saw another bad thing happened to her. SO Cecelia Ahern did a great job again . I have loved so much this book .show more
