Nuala O’Faolain’s posthumous novel

Best Love, RosieNuala O’Faolain’s last book, Best Love, Rosie, was published earlier this month to mark the first anniversary of her death. The book was described by its author as "the book of my years commuting between the melancholy of Ireland and the optimism of America”.
The book tells the story of Rosie, a modern, well-travelled woman, who has had interesting work and lovers in her early life, now facing the challenges of middle-age, and her elderly aunt, Min, trapped by circumstances in sleepy Dublin. When she gets an opportunity to travel to New York, the story takes an intriguing turn. The book, originally published in France, has gone straight into the bestsellers list there.
