Product description

Product Description

Nicole Sutton’s world has been turned upside down. Sixteen and suffering the fallout of a devastating family tragedy, she is forced to move away from her London home to the quiet town of Henley—and a new life she never wanted nor expected.

In the dusty cellar of her strange new house, Nicole stumbles upon a worn old journal left behind by a previous occupant. Inside, through the eyes of a soldier named Mac, she finds herself drawn into a brutally honest memoir of the horrors of war and Auschwitz—and of the life and love Mac had to leave behind.

The more Nicole reads, the more she is able to make sense of her own troubles. Because Mac’s story is so much more than a journal: it is the story of a family fighting for survival in the darkest days of humanity, of hope in the face of persecution. And then there’s the buried gold…

Revised edition: This edition of Rosa's Gold includes editorial revisions.

Great read. However graphic descriptions of horrific abuse and torture suffered by the Jews and others in the war, so not a late night read! Keeps you guessing until the end.

“Rosa’s Gold” was so well-written that although the reader has some very confronting scenes around the cruel, inhuman, sadistic events of the Holocaust, moments of tenderness and love emerge in many ways. Every chapter is narrated either by Nicole or by Mac, and this technique is crafted so seamlessly that the reader can follow it easily.
Due to the dysfunction of her mother and father‘s marriage, Nicole and her mother separated themselves from the father and lived in an old farmhouse. In the basement, Nicole had discovered a journal written by Mac, who was unfortunately caught up as an innocent victim of the Holocaust. Although the mother was not interested in learning about Mac’s life, Nicole, on the other hand, was obsessed with it.
Past and present merge so masterfully and cohesively that the reader is smoothly guided through both time periods without ever losing track of events, characters, time, or place.
This book was so hard to put down. It entertains like fiction, but is so detailed and realistic and full of emotion, that it seems like a true story. Definitely worth reading-maybe even twice.

Set in the past and the present, one man's account on his internment at auschwitz under Nazi rule leaves the reader without words to express their emotions. Mac's notebook recounting the events of his life is read by a teenage girl so the reader has her sub story to distract from the horrors described in the concentration camp. Her involvement helps bring the story to its conclusion.

This book interweaves three different stories . A modern family tragedy, the life story of an old man , and a wArtime romance ending in a death camp. I found myself caught up in the characters and wanted to know how life turned out for all of them. It was an absorbing and interesting read.

If you enjoy history, even grim history, love stories, teen age confusion, strong characterisation and a cleverly resolved resolution then you will not be disappointed by this well crafted web. Ray Kingfisher has given us a well written, well researched novel based on historical facts and an understanding of human frailties, which when plaited together held my interest throughout the entire journey.

I have cried over this amazing storie. I know in all tne history of what I have read at school and the horrendous things that the Germans did in the war. I still cannot forgive them. My only wish is that all involved, in the hottific crimes are bought to justice, i know it has been years and they are all probably dead the only place for them is HELL and i am sure if there is a GOD thats where they went. This story has made me realize there are people out there who are still suffering for there family and the horrific crimes that the GERMANS and the Russians did. I believe Mousolini was blinded by false belief and the promise of power by the discusting HITLER. God bless you for telling this story and at least something good came out of it.

Depending on the time in history, the events seem to create a vortex in peoples' lives. This is such a chronicle delicately articulated by the author. The incursions into the improbable are so minor and the character draw so comprehensive that complete capture of my time and imagination was not difficult.
An unputdownable experience.
