Review:
When, at thirty-four, teacher and painter Rosa decides to make changes in her life, she has to contend with those who do not agree or understand. Rosa's seventeen-year-old son Sean feels slighted; Sierra, Rosa's best friend, is threatened; and Rosa's second husband Julio, is angry at Rosa and himself. How can she do this to him, he demands. The intensity of the love and hate she feels for Julio confuses Rosa. When they are in sync, conversation flows and making love is a powerful pleasure, but more often their simmering anger erupts. So she buys the house revealed to her in her dreams and lives by herself for the first time. When she finds out she is pregnant and decides to have Julio's baby, alone, everyone is - again - full of questions and accusations. Staring at her paintings and her belly, she, too, wonders what she is doing. Rosa is far from perfect - she drinks lots of wine, loves to flirt, and falls into bed with Julio when she tells herself she won't. She also has a strong and curious spirit, listens to her dreams, and fondly remembers the grandmother who raised her. Rosa is aware of her own "powerful softness" and realizes that "it takes all the strength I've got to push down through my fear, and you never really know if you're going to make it." Still she bravely questions, without knowing the answers, the roles and values she is expected to follow. -- For great reviews of books for girls, check out < --From <
