Jane Duncan books are no longer in print and so I was very pleased to find this one reasonably priced. It was sent quickly and the book was in good condition as stated in the advertisement. I love all her books and this one did not disappoint. This is the third book in this series that I have read, and I like it much better than the last one I read (which was 'My Friend Muriel').

I love these books although they were written a long time ago! Jane Duncan a Scot, who lived in the Caribbean,for many years, wrote her books in the linen cupboard because her husband didn't approve. These are funny gentle books that lift your spirit. Duncan also writes as Janet Sandison.

This is another wonderful book by one of my favourite authors. The title is misleading, for we come to find out that Rose is anything but a friend. The story shares many dark happenings that go on in the mind of twisted, jealous people. It shows how those people can be a cruel bully to those they need to love the most. Duncan once again writes as complex a character as one will ever come across. The book also reveals surprises about the journey of Janet Sandison's complicated, and never boring life. I highly recommend this book.
I am very satisfied with my purchase of My Friend Rose.
I love all Jane Duncan books, have most of them now.
This is, I think, the 8th book in Jane Duncan's 'My Friends' series, but as the books often jump through time in the narrator's life, it isn't necessary to read them in order. This is the third book in this series that I have read, and I like it much better than the last one I read (which was 'My Friend Muriel'). The narrator, Janet, is a Scottish woman living in London in the 1930's who ends up being a nanny to a lonely, spoiled little girl named Dee. Dee's stepmother is the Rose of the title, a brash, spoiled, beautiful, childish, alcoholic woman who somehow inspires pity and compassion even in those whom she's insulting. Duncan has a flare for turning a phrase in an unexpected and refreshing direction, and she goes off on far fewer tangents than in 'Muriel.' It wasn't until the very end, however, when Janet meets Rose again after many years, that the reasons for considering Rose a positive influence became apparent, and that was when the book moved up from 3.5 to 4 stars for me. I know these books are difficult to find, but check your local library or used bookstore--if you like this one, there's about 18 more to read.
