Description

Rosy's grandmother keeps vanishing. Where does she go when she disappears? And is there really a treasure like Granny claims?

Intrigued by these persistent puzzles, Rosy enlists the help of her unusual family to solve the mysteries of the treasure and of her grandmother's behaviour, in this funny, touching and offbeat story.

Set against the backdrop of beautiful Vancouver, Rosemary for Remembrance is a compelling mystery that explores the joys and sorrows of family life.

Editorial Reviews

"Move over American-wannabes, here come Rosemary for Rememberance, another quirky and lovable Canadian novel. This delicious blend of the ordinary and the absurd sparkles with life and humor... author Sonia Craddock captures the complicated and subtle twists of familial relationships and the sometimes bizarre situations which can occur in what is seemingly an average family. This is an easy read: quick, comical, and a thriller for those ages seven and up."

— St. John's Evening-Telegram

"Rosemary for Rememberance is a well-written story that successfully manages to combine humour...with the very real difficulties of living with someone suffering from memory loss... it certainly would help meet the needs of a child who know or lives with a person dealing with the difficulties of memory loss."

— Resource Links

"This tale of pathos and humor is a genuine page-turner. Rose's compassion and respact for Granny make her an inspiring role model...recommended."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"Rosemary for Remembrance is another book too good to get lost as just another title in a series."

— Vancouver Sun
