On Herring Cove Road : Mr. Rosen and His 43Lb Anxiety
by Michael Kroft


Overview -

Once an amusing extrovert with a reputation as a prankster, Mr. Rosen is entering his senior years as a stoic, thirty-year converted introvert who hates change, has little to no interest in people and is more than content to have his wife sit in the navigator's seat of his life. Since becoming a practicing introvert, there have been almost no changes in his life, and for the few that there were, his wife had walked him through them, including the recent move to a much smaller home in a lower/middle-class neighborhood where he lives next to a racist whose pint-sized son addresses him as Mr. Jew.

Mr. Rosen had seen the move coming, and he is very much aware of the enormous change to come sometime in the, hopefully, far-off future; though, he refuses to give it any attention. That painful change will force him to chart his own life's route.

Taking place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, this heartwarming, feel-good novel offers a roller coaster ride of emotion as Mr. Rosen's habitual world begins to implode while on a collision course with the chaotic world of an innocent child, its troubled mother, and vengeful father.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Taking place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series follows the sometimes amusing, sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes terrifying events that follow an introverted old Jewish man's retirement as he reluctantly befriends a young and struggling single mother, her naive and lonely son, and lastly, a boy streetwise beyond his years.

​"I don't usually enjoy books in a series but this was an exception. It was uplifting, and interesting with some twists I didn't see coming...It wasn't all sweet and goody two shoes either. It had some dark and realistic moments and characters. Very well written." -(Amazon Customer)
