I love all of Anne Lamott's books. This is no exception!
I'm a huge fan of LaMotte and really enjoyed this book. It tells of a woman (a tad eccentric - and a burgeoning alcoholic) raising her daughter, Annie, alone - the growth she makes as a mother, a friend, and a partner.
A beautiful, lyrical,touching glimpse of mothers and daughters.
Good reading about mothers and daughters
Anything by Anne Lamott is a great read. Thoughtful, interesting characters; this is a story about motherhood, and growing up of mother and daughter
"Rosie is a masterpiece; Anne Lamott is a novelist of genius." I couldn't agree more! It was great!
very enjoyable book, look forward to reading the sequel...
Great Book. A good quick easy read!
I enjoyed the book, although I wish I had read it prior to having read "Crooked Little Heart." Anne Lamott has become one of my favorite writers, and the way she develops characters is wonderful. If you are thinking of reading this book, I would suggest you read this first and then go directly to "Crooked Little Heart," which I would give five stars. These make a fine pair for readers.
If Elizabeth Ferguson had her way, she's 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.
