"Rose blends place into struggles and existence of the location, philosophical thoughts and perhaps real-life happenings that define the poem itself. It’s an impressive use of balance in presentation…These poems rejoice in their discoveries of place. They will show the reader a life lived fully in each one."
L.B. Sedlacek author of Words and Bones and I’m No Robot
"It’s funny, thought provoking, erudite and entertaining, in equal measure. But above all it is poignant — the outline of Lucia’s tragic life is laid bare, alongside her illustrious father’s attempts to cope with it."
Review: Irish Post
The Artist’s Model and Other Stories
Rose writes with beautiful imagery. Each story perfectly captures the feel, the place, the voice of the tale being told and the characters in them.
