|About the Book|
The Last Rose of Summer covers several generations of the same family and one girl who gets caught up in their story. It is the story of a beautiful house and garden and their attachment to it -- all the elements of a riveting story. However, I found Di Morrisseys overuse of description irritating. Too much time was spent in minute description of irrelevant information.These red herrings led me to expect more out of the book than I was given. Whilst I did enjoy the story, I spent a lot of the time in frustration.
