Dear Miss O'Grady, your masterpiece is possibly the most tragic and frightening love story that I have ever read. It had a strong impact on me when I came across it as a young girl. I was about Catherine Barton's age at the time. For decades, I remembered this unique and mysterious novel and was finally able to secure a copy very recently. It is a book that I would have liked to share with the late Iris Murdoch and today, with Joyce Carol Oates. Indeed, Rosemary is for Remembrance, and with this in mind, I have placed a few sprigs in my volume. Warm appreciation for your coup de force, imagination and originality.
