Review of The Rosemary Suite

This is not a story of heroics, but of ordinary people dealing with fear and loss and rage through love and courage. It speaks of riches that cannot be bartered or traded, riches that accumulate with love and generosity, and that feed us in ways we cannot name.”

-Chris Yates, Connections Magazine, Winter 2002/2003

“The book offers an insight that does not compromise because Barnwell has resisted the temptation to edit out elements … that speak of the frailty and vulnerability that one cannot avoid when it comes to death.”

-Monica Lamb-Yorski, The Prince Rupert Daily News, December 2002

“Tenderness and love are pitted against pain and fear. The reader encounters the author’s sense of awe, both at her friend’s strength and at death’s determined counter-force.”

-Raine Reece, The Interior News, Smithers, B.C., November 2002
