    Authors:
    Dorothy Koomson
    Beside The Rose Petal Beach is an ebook accompaniment to Dorothy Koomson's bestselling novel The Rose Petal Beach, which has been shortlisted for a National Book Award 2012. In The Rose Petal Beach Tami Challey's husband, Scott, is arrested for a terrible crime in front of her and their two children. When Tami finds out who Scott's accuser is, we can only watch as her whole life starts to fall apart. We see many of the events of The Rose Petal Beach through Tami's eyes, but Beside The Rose Petal Beach will give you another perspective on the story. You'll see how one of the minor - but important - characters in the book experiences some of the key scenes... And how he is slowly being changed by spending time with the Tami and the others. You don't need to have already read The Rose Petal Beach to enjoy Beside The Rose Petal Beach, but if you have, it'll hopefully add another dimension to your understanding of the book.
