Lindas Book Obsession Reviews “The Emerald Necklace” by Linda Rosen, Black Rose Writing, 5/23, On Tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours

No comments

Linda Rosen, the Author of “The Emerald Necklace,” has written a thought-provoking and riveting novel. The Genres for this novel are Women’s Fiction, Fiction, and Historical Fiction. The timeline for this novel is in the 1960s and 1970s. The story goes to the past regarding the events and characters. The author describes her colorful and dramatic characters as complex and complicated, perhaps due to the complicated timeline. This story is about friendship, sisterhood, second chances, communication, and fighting for women’s equality rights. The author also discusses the importance of finding yourself and your self-worth. Some of the characters are very creative and express themselves through forms of art or through writing.

This also reflects several generations of women who fought for their rights in society and lived on their terms. The author also discusses the choices that women are forced to make. The topic of abortion is brought up, and the feelings of the people involved. Women did fight for the right to vote but were still treated unequally from men in the workforce and at home. I appreciate how the author writes and vividly describes the characters in this situation.

One of the protagonists in the story, Rosalee Linkoff, is a new widow who would like to return to her sculpting but doesn’t feel confident. She meets a new neighbor, author Fran Barish. Fran is a popular and successful author. There is an undercurrent of jealousy between the two women. Rosalee is a mother and grandmother, and Fran never had children. Fran warms up to Rosalee’s granddaughter, Jill, for some reason. Fran is fascinated by an emerald necklace that Jill wears.

The two women meet with some of Rosalee’s friends, chat, and socialize. The women go to New York City for a Woman’s Equality March. Jill also goes and loves that she is witnessing history. Fran’s opinion is different from the other women on fighting for some causes. This is a well-written story, and I highly recommend this to other people.
