. . . An immigrant community plagued with gangs, incest, abuse and poverty, is lifted from despair when Rosie Goldberg Sanchez opens a small grocery store in their neighborhood and decides to teach English in the back room. But first she has to fight her way past gang leader Chicory Ayala.
. . . A stabbing in a Bronx bar brings four unlikely people together for a trip across country during which they find out about each other and gain insight into their own fears, frustrations and dreams.
. . . A group of characters who, despite cultural, educational and economic disparity, find a way into each others’ hearts as they overcome prejudice and move toward friendship and love.

LOVED THE CHARACTERS —

Hortencia is a trip. Anyone who “loves her husband to death” because he snores, gets my respect. What a hoot!

EXCELLENT! COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN!

From the first page to the last, ROSIE is a “feel good” read peppered with hilarious dialogue. . . . An exciting ride from a bar in the Bronx to a ghetto in Los Angeles. What a page turner . . . kept me up until 2:00 a.m.

SEXY AND EXCITING

Kudos on the sex scenes: Whew! It gave me goose bumps; I knew I had to read the next sentence . . . and the next paragraph, and the next chapter.

GRIPPING AND TENSE

An expose on the ramifications of sexual abuse. A testimonial to the determination of the spirit to rise above the grinding wheels of poverty, prejudice and fear.

HEART-WARMING AND INSPIRING

A potpourri of inter-relationships; a triumph of determination to overcome fear and prejudice in an environment rife with abuse and poverty.
