"Best Love, Rosie" is the much anticipated last novel from Nuala O'- Faolain, who sadly passed away in May 2008. It tells the story of Rosie, a modern, well-travelled woman, who has had interesting work and lovers in her early life, now facing the challenges of middle-age, and her elderly aunt, Min, trapped by circumstances in the lifeless Dublin milieu (stuck in a rut in sleepy Dublin). When they get an opportunity to travel to New York, the story takes an intriguing turn. 'My head is with Min. But my heart is with her niece, my dear Rosie.' (Nuala O'Faolain).
Nuala O'Faolain (1 March 1940 - 9 May 2008) was one of Ireland's best-loved journalists and writers.

The first three were all eatured on the New York Times Best Seller list. Her posthumous novel Best Love, Rosie was first published in French by Sabine Wespieser, Editeur in September 2008.
