Denise DeSio knows how to write. In her novel, Rose's Will, she grabs hold of the reader on page one. I received her book yesterday and tried to have a quick peek. That was a mistake. DeSio does a brilliant job at weaving a tight, believable, intelligent story that takes the reader into every emotion of what it is to be human. There is no escaping the human condition in this work. She rips at those of us who can relate to the mother-daughter torment, throws us into melancholy with a tender love and acceptance by a Eli who lives tolerance, to the paradoxical conflicted sibling relationship, to and ending that builds tensions that the imagination, that can easily embrace devastation, does not want to envision, only to bring us back to the seat of our chair to find that after all, in redemption the heart knows what the mind can never conceive. Highly recommend!
