My teaser this week is from Dearest Rose by Rowan Coleman
Published September 22, 2012 by Arrow Books
Genre: contemporary British fiction

You didn't have to be so kind to a stranger turning up, unannounced, but you were and I am so grateful. Although you were not able to help me find the painting, everything you told me about your father was both fascinating and heartbreaking.
