Return to Roseglen is a poignant story of family and ageing, sibling rivalry and entitlement, long held secrets and second chances. I fell in love with Ivy Dunmore by page 2 and that feeling didn’t waiver throughout the book. Helene Young has written a heartfelt story filled with strong women and the most wonderful supportive men I’ve read about in a long time. No one is perfect and Young shows through her characters that we all make mistakes but we should not let our mistakes define us. Return to Roseglen will have you contemplating your own life, especially if you have ageing parents. Young is the master of emotion as the story had my tears welling, my anger rising and at other times I was happily celebrating the triumphs along with the characters. I would recommend Return to Roseglen to anyone who enjoys a compelling family drama.
