The Rosey View Of The World: One Woman's Journey Through The 20th Century by Andrew Scott Bassett is the story of a woman who had a front-row seat through some of the most challenging times in human history. It follows the journey of Rosey throughout the twentieth century and the various changes and events she witnessed during her lifetime. Growing up with a British heritage, Rosey was always different than her peers. Getting married to a soldier, bearing children, and living through three wars and the fight for civil rights, didn’t change her at all. All her life, Rosey fought for what was right, what she considered was for the best, and didn’t back down. As Rosey fought for others, she learned to fight for herself, believe in herself, and leave a roadmap for her children.
Andrew Scott Bassett shares his mother Rosetta's life story in such a clear writing style that I felt like I was Rosey as she lived through the most challenging times. Educational, inspirational, and entertaining, The Rosey View of the World was the perfect companion for me over the past few days. The story explores themes of progress, social change, and personal growth through Rosey's eyes, giving us a unique perspective on the events of the time. Instead of making the story about the war and the upheaval it brought into the lives of everyone, the author gives us a perspective of a woman whose soldier husband is away at war, and she is left with taking care of her children. By doing so, Andrew makes the experiences human and relatable. The prologue hit the message home, and from there onward, I knew I would fall in love with Rosey and her journey. I loved the way Bassett tells the story. The thoughts of the 9-year-old Rosey were just as comforting and riveting as those of an older, more mature Rosey. Kudos to the author!
