Rose was reserved, never wanted to leave her home or Gloucestershire, and was - well - an ordinary girl vvho grew into an ordinary woman.
But as Jon raced from disaster to disaster, from one violent relationship to another so Rose, in her quiet way, salvaged the family, pasted over the cracks of tragedy and emohonal upheavals whilst at the same time fighting her own personal crises.
It was much later - when life at last seemed tranquil and settled - that Jon precipitated Rose across the Atlantic and into the most extraordinary event of her life. When Rose finally returned from America no one could ever again think of her as an ordinary woman.

An Ordinary Woman by Susan Sallis
This is a fantastic book. For those who like family sagas and family dramas filled with romance, adventure and secrets, this is a must listen. Rose and Joannah are sisters who are totally different. Joannah is captivating, going from crisis to crisis and a girl who gets everything she wants. Rose was reserved, quiet, the peacemaker in the family. She must battle her own demons and save not only her own happiness but that of Joannah and her family. In doing so thanks to Joannah's need for help, she transforms from an ordinary woman into an extraodinary one. I love this book because you can identify with many of the situations the characters find themselves in, and the suspence of the secrets is thrilling! a must listen for winter evenings.
