About the Author:

Anne Doughty was born in Armagh but spent many years in England before returning to live in Belfast. She is the author of A Few Late Roses (longlisted for the Irish Times literature prize), Stranger in the Place and Summer of the Hawthorn and, with Seven House, On a Clear Day and Beyond the Green Hills.

From Booklist:

Doughty continues the saga of the Hamiltons of Ballydown, Ireland. Set in the 1920s, this installment centers on Rosie, daughter of Sam Hamilton and his wife, Martha. After attending finishing school, a luxury no one else in her large family had, 16-year-old Rosie is at loose ends. She works tirelessly on her family’s farm but doesn’t have much hope for the future. With times as tough as they are, her only chance at a job is working as a housekeeper in one of the large homes in the area, something she dreads doing. Her mother constantly berates her, and one day, after a vicious beating, her father finally steps in. Rosie is to spend some time with her grandparents. They, in turn, take a long-awaited trip to Kerry. As she resumes her life at the farm, she continues to search for some direction. Slowly Rosie’s world opens up in ways she never could have imagined in this compelling and sweet tale of self-discovery. --Maria Hatton

Book Description Severn House Publishers Ltd. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, A Girl Called Rosie (Large type edition), Anne Doughty, This is a novel set in post civil war Ireland - 1924-1926.Ireland, 1924. At nearly 16, Rose Hamilton's granddaughter, Rosie, is growing into a lovely young woman, with a striking resemblance to her beloved Granny. With only a few more weeks of Miss Wilson's school at Richhill to go, she should have her life before her.But Rosie lives in fear of her mother's fierce temper and cruel jibes, which - more often than not - lead to violence. Her father, Sam, is aware of this and determines to get Rosie away from Martha. A trip to Kerry, in the company of her grandparents, seems the perfect opportunity. For Rose and John, now in their seventies, this is a pilgrimage to the land of their childhood and to Currane Lodge, where they first met. For Rosie, it is an eye-opening adventure and the first step into adult life in an Ireland hopefully at peace having been torn apart first by the British and then by a fierce internal civil war.
