Rose Gold Watts believed she was sick for eighteen years.!She thought she needed the feeding tube, the surgeries, the wheelchair . . .Turns out her mother is a really good liar.
After five years in prison, Patty Watts is finally free. All she wants is to put old grievances behind her, reconcile with the daughter who testified against her – and care for her new infant grandson.
When Rose Gold agrees to have Patty move in, it seems their relationship is truly on the mend. And she has waited such a long time for her mother to come home.
But is she still the pliable young girl she once was? And is Patty still as keen on settling an old score?
Because if mothers never forget then daughters never forgive.
This book was excellent. I had been looking forward to reading it for ages and it didn’t disappoint. The story is told from Patty’s point of view in present times and Rose Gold’s while Patty was in prison. It gives an insight into their actions and we see more of why they behaved the way they did. We see the long term effects of Patty’s actions for Rose Gold. I would have liked to see a bit more of Rose Gold’s childhood and her life with Patty. It would have been interesting to see how Patty justified her actions, we see bits of her justifications throughout the book but I would have liked to see how it all began. I did really enjoy the storyline and I would highly recommend this book.
