A wistful, poignant novel. Author: Sarah Naughton, author of TATTLE TALE
In After Isabella, Fiore has created a compelling and provocative read, nicely paced and thoroughly absorbing. At times, both heart-warming and poignant, it's impossible not to feel a sense of loss on turning the final page. Source: Irish Independent
A beautiful, heartfelt novel that swept me up and held me tight until the end. I was lost in this powerful, poignant tale. Author: Amanda Prowse on AFTER ISABELLA
A heartfelt novel about how messy life is, and how relationships and families change over time. Both heartwarming and sad, it's an insightful, thought-provoking glimpse into female friendships, love and loyalty. Source: Julie Cohen on AFTER ISABELLA
After Isabella is a beautiful, absorbing novel that deals with the issues at the very heart of what it means to be a woman. I was drawn in from the very first page and loved the way Rosie handled both the harsh realities, and the beauty, of the friendships and family relationships that define us. I can't wait to read more from her! Author: Tracy Buchanan

The story unfolds through the eyes of various characters, all of whom are all well-rounded. Helen's husband, Sam, for example, is sympathetic to the extent that much of the story is told from his perspective. However, he is deeply, deeply flawed. The fact that he was neither a straightforward romantic hero nor a one-dimensional villain made the story very real for me.
Above all, I loved that the book has a feminist message, without ever being preachy. And, despite the subject matter, it contained a couple of jokes that had me laughing out loud.
To sum up, What She Left is an intriguing read that reminds me of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train - but warmer, somehow. And with more likeable characters.
