The Recovery Of Rose Gold aka Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel
Patty is out of jail after serving 5 years for the medical child abuse of her daughter. She's strangely unreflective and her goal impossible to ascertain. Her daughter Rose Gold suffers the side effects of her mother's abuse and she is someone for whom nothing in the world works out.
When Rose Gold allows Patty into her home and feverish intensity and the thrill of calamity ensue. Rose Gold veers between self-dramatizing and deep despair. Patty misses the days when she was a heart warming inspiration. Rose Gold and Patty's reunion causes acrimonious cirumstances which significantly escalate leading to devastating consequences.
Patty misses the days of her daughter's compliance. Rose Gold can recall when her mother's manipulation and coercion was a distressing fact of life. Patty treats her trial and conviction and prison term as a boo-boo. This was obviously inspired by a true story. This is uncomfortably credible. A disgraceful business of manipulation unfolds. Mothers never forget and daughters never forgive. This is insufferable. It's try hard and contrived.
