Rosey in the Present Tense

Rosey cover

This novel has been used in death and dying programs across the country and remains one of Louise's most popular books. It's the story of Franklin Sanders, who has just lost his best friend, Rosey Mishimi in a fatal car accident. Six months have passed since her death, and worried friends and family urge him to get over it. "Take your medicine," they tell him. "See your shrink," they say. Of course, what they really mean is forget. But how can he forget when remembering Rosey is the only thing that brings him relief?
