Maggie never wanted to go into the family business, but when her parents die suddenly and her husband has just abandoned her and their two small children, what choice does she have? With the support of her best friend Elka and her mentor Betty, she had to accept becoming a funeral director. Now Kate and Nick are grown and Maggie faces the prospect of a future without them.
It’s the middle of winter and Queenstown is full of skiers. Betty has just died and Elka needs surgery. Kate, back from London where she was an up and coming chef, won’t get out of bed. Nick feels guilty delivering fast food to an ex-champion skier, Lizzie, who is bitter about the injury which robbed her of glory. There is a movie star on location nearby who won’t listen to advice, and Maggie can’t seem to put a foot right with the new doctor in town.
People are dying and life goes on.

Rosy has always had a passion for writing and it brings her great joy to be able to share these stories with you.
She was born in the late fifties in Gore – a small town in the South Island of New Zealand. After finishing school in Invercargill, she trained at Otago University Medical School to be a doctor.
Throughout the years, she had worked in a variety of medical disciplines, women’s health and general practice, in New Zealand and overseas and currently work as an Occupational Physician in Wellington.
Writing has always been a hobby, and in 2004, in collaboration with a number of other women doctors, in a variety of specialities based in New Zealand, In Practice, the lives of woman doctors in the 21st century was published by Random House. This book details young women doctors moving into what was then a male-dominated industry and how they balanced their professional careers with their personal lives.
