BLUE ROSE - a 'good read' as they say

a novel by Andrew Burke

'Blue Rose is a gritty and confronting novel set in Western Australia’s conservative late Fifties and early Sixties. 

It follows the turbulent life of Rose, a young teenage runaway with resilience, innate intelligence - and a good singing voice. 

She tangles with a Hungarian boxer, a psychopath, a bikie gang and a recovering drug-addict/folksinger in her struggle to find her true self, while law enforcement and child welfare authorities press ever more strongly to gain custody of her child. 

This is a story which echoes the news stories of today, presenting a deeply emotional portrait of a young woman driven by a strong maternal instinct to provide for her daughter.'
