Description - Return to Roseglen by Helene Young

A moving and insightful family drama about three generations coming to terms with the family matriarch facing her final days.

At times like these families should be coming together, not tearing each other apart.

On her remote North Queensland cattle station, Ivy Dunmore is facing the end of her days. Increasingly frail, all she holds dear is threatened not just by crippling drought, but by jealousy and greed - and that's from within her own family.

Can Felicity, who's battling her own crisis as her fiftieth birthday approaches, protect her mother and reunite her family under the homestead's faded iron roof? Or will sibling rivalries erupt and long-held secrets from the past break a family in crisis?

From award-winning Australian author Helene Young comes a story about family fractures and feuds in later life - and about loved ones being there for each other when it matters the most.

'This is probably the best contemporary read of the year! It resonated in so many ways. Intelligent. Brilliant.'
Carol Seeley, Reading Writing Riesling

Book Review: Return to Roseglen by Helene Young - Reviewed by (17 Aug 2018)

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.
