"Move over American-wannabes, here come Rosemary for Rememberance, another quirky and lovable Canadian novel. This delicious blend of the ordinary and the absurd sparkles with life and humor... author Sonia Craddock captures the complicated and subtle twists of familial relationships and the sometimes bizarre situations which can occur in what is seemingly an average family. This is an easy read: quick, comical, and a thriller for those ages seven and up."

- Karen Shewbridge St. John's Evening-Telegram

"Rosemary for Remembrance is another book too good to get lost as just another title in a series."

- Paula Hart Vancouver Sun

"This tale of pathos and humor is a genuine page-turner. Rose's compassion and respact for Granny make her an inspiring role model...recommended."

- Elizabeth St Jacques Canadian Book Review Annual

"Rosemary for Rememberance is a well-written story that successfully manages to combine humour...with the very real difficulties of living with someone suffering from memory loss... it certainly would help meet the needs of a child who know or lives with a person dealing with the difficulties of memory loss."

- Lara McAllister Resource Links
