Brisbane. Pre Expo ’88. Rosanna walks into Anna’s art therapy. She is delusional. Prostituted. Homeless. The government deems her unfit for parenting. Caught up in Brisbane’s underbelly, she fights to reclaim her children. As Rosanna’s story unravels, Anna’s past begins to reveal itself.

An elusive familiarity haunts their relationship. What ties these two women together?

Rosanna is a deeply Australian story of hidden truths within the glory of our wild landscapes. It illuminates the healing force of sisterhood. Holds the charm of Celtic folklore. Shows the power of our human will to regain dignity out of the destruction of culture.

Industry Reviews
'A lush and beautifully written novel. As her therapist uncovers what Rosanna is hiding and why, an evocative climax builds to a rewarding finish. The author has captured the energy and emotional tension of intertwining relationships. The Australian threads which are woven throughout the book - the places, people, and landscapes - are beautifully described. I absolutely adored this book.' Vicki Bennett, Author; 'Captivating and real, a beautiful story about healing, found family, overcoming trauma and tragedy, and the importance of the good things that can be found in life.' Nita Delgado, Editor; 'Rosanna is set in a small rural town in the magical forests of the Northern Rivers region of NSW. Underlying this natural beauty is a disturbed and destructive underbelly that reflects a shameful era of neglect, abuse and violence in Australian family culture. Annie O'Moon-Browning's subtle and sophisticated novel weaves the story of one woman's triumphant healing journey back to herself. Rosanna is an important read.' Dr Nicci Buirski; 'Rosanna is a raw and healing tale of Rose's journey through love, trauma, and loss as a young girl and free spirit in Nimbin, New South Wales. Rosanna explores the deep, spiritual enchantments of Australian nature and its connection to the complexities of human experience.' Beth Falzon, Reviewer
