Book Description

5 Feb 2005
Nick Robertson has become used to his grandmother Rosie's dotty behaviour. At 86, a widow now, she is determined that before life passes her by, she will live a little. Or, preferably, a lot. It wouldn't be so bad if Nick had nothing else to do, but with a job to find, two warring parents to cope with and a love life in terminal decline, he would prefer his grandmother to get on with things quietly. But, Rosie insists, there is no time like the present. Life is to be enjoyed to the full and to hell with the consequences. She'll help Nick find the soulmate he clearly lacks and he can help her make the most of her few remaining years. Alan Titchmarsh's sparkling new novel is a delicious blend of humour and romance, and a resounding affirmation that there is no such thing as the generation gap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosie 23 May 2007
Format:Paperback
What a delight,I loved it .The storyline is wonderful so is Rosie herself. A slightly outrageous,whacky mature !!!lady who is not going down without a fight and is determined to live life to the full, even if it does`nt meet with all of her family`s approval. Whoever heard of a lady that age getting herself arrested, running away from home, then turning up on her grandsons doorstep,and what a great relationship they have.There are so many surprises in this book.Alan Titchmarsh has done it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to grow old disgracefully 28 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
At last a real feel good book. Its been a while since I had such an engaging read in my hot sticky paws. I couldn't put it down is over worked but I really did read this in one sitting. Such a lovely cast of characters I was genuinely pleased to get to know them. Please when I grow up, (not yet a while! after all I'm only just over half of Rosie's age - read the book and go figure. Oh and like Rosie I lie about my age) I want to grow up like Rosie, still enjoying life, right till the last minute.
