The Simple Life?: A Candid Account of Rosie Drum’S Life from 1960S Scotland.
The Sixties. The Swinging Sixties. The Beatles. Carnaby Street. Vidal Sassoon. Mary Quant. The Pill. The Permissive Society. The Simple Life is a world away from all this. It is the story of a girl growing up in Edinburgh in that decade. How am I supposed to love this cried her mother when Rosie was born. She grew up with a permanent void in her heart. Against all odds Rosie came to find that people could love and respect her. From her radio interviews with people like Frankie Vaughan and Andy Williams, Rosie now sits on influential committees and has fulfilled her lifelong dream of meeting the Queen. Her life begins solitary and somewhat sheltered, but blossoms as she matures. Life throws numerous obstacles at her, as it does to so many people, but she just gets on with things. Ever positive, ever determined, Rosie has the innate ability to turn dire situations into a source of marvel and enthusiasm. When her world plunges her into the depth of despair, help comes through her circle of loyal friends and Rosie never forgets the kindnesses bestowed upon her. This is an insightful look at life and how to deal with it. You will identify with many of the situations that beset her. Laugh with Rosie, cry with Rosie you will do both as you will be enticed to look upon life as a set of fascinating circumstances.
