Beautifully written book. Author does a good job of developing the characters. Roseanne can be contemplative, go off on tangent, be extremely forgetful ... all very believable for a 100 year old woman. However, the book is very dark. I had to put it down several times because of Roseanne's hardships. Almost didn't finish the book, but I'm glad I did.
