ABOUT FRANKLIN ROSE PUBLISHING
Franklin Rose Publishing is named after Rose Franklin, our founder's maternal grandmother. Grandma Rose was a kind and caring soul, whose open heart and welcoming smile concealed the hard road she walked. Rose is remembered as a warm, loving, supportive friend to all. Few people ever knew the hardship and adversity Rose had endured in her early life.
At a young age, Grandma Rose’s mother died and Rose was placed in a Rochester, NY orphanage. As the youngest child in care, Rose was separated from the other children and for many years, lived a lonely, isolated life. She found solace in dance, and became a promising ballerina. Unfortunately, the stock market crashed and the world plunged into the Great Depression. With no funds to support the children, the orphanage sent them away, and Rose was delivered to her half-sister in Ohio. Shortly after Rose arrived, her sister died of tuberculosis—and young Rose found herself abandoned and alone again.
Rose struggled to stay in school, sleeping at night on park benches. One day, a classmate, Anne Goodman, saw Rose weeping and asked “Why are you crying, Rose?” “Because I have nowhere to sleep,” Rose sobbed. Anne took her friend home and, upon hearing Rose’s misfortune, the Goodman family welcomed her as one of their own. At last, Rose found her "forever home.”
There is much more to Rose’s story, of course, but we share it with you here because Franklin Rose Publishing is dedicated to the memory of Grandma Rose, a woman whose kindheartedness, compassion, and love for others proves that experiencing tragedy in life doesn’t have to harden your heart—in fact, it can crack it wide open.
At Franklin Rose Publishing, we are committed to offering our authors the same considerate and compassionate support that Grandma Rose gave to everyone who crossed her path.
