Rosie Colored Glasses Read Online Free - Sometimes even all the love in the world is not enough to save someone.
Willow Thorpe knows friction… The friction between her parents, Rosie and Rex. The friction inside herself as she tries to navigate two worlds since their divorce.
But life has not always been like this.
When Rosie and Rex first met, theirs was an attraction of opposites. Rosie lived life for those heightened moments when love reveals its true secrets. Rex lived life safely, by the rules. Common sense would say theirs was a union not meant to last, but it was genuine love.
Now Willow just wants to be with Rosie, to bask in her mother’s outsize glow and, she thinks, protection. Because Rosie is the only person who can make Willow feel totally alive and completely loved.
But as Willow and Rosie and Rex try harder and harder to stay connected as a family, Rosie’s manic tornado of love continues to sweep up everyone in sight, ultimately to heartbreaking results.

I read the description and for some reason I thought it would be a lighter read. Maybe it was the use of the word whimsical. It wasn’t. It's a sad story, sadder even knowing that the character of Rosie and the story in some ways is based on the author's free spirit mother who was addicted to opia...

When I was about thirty pages into this book I wrote in the comment section of my updates, that Willow was going to break my heart. She did, but what I didn't expect was that this whole family would. It is not that I am getting marshmellowy, but rather than going into a long discourse on my perso...

This was a sad story, but at the same time, it was a story so full of love! It’s not often that I come across a book where I love the characters so much, having to let them go in the end felt like a piece of my heart was being taken away as well. I fell so hard for this beautiful, broken, flawed...

Heartfelt. Evocative. Poignant. Beautiful.
These are just a few of the adjectives that found their way into my notes as I read this book. A book I loved and which should really be required to carry warnings to potential readers. You should be warned that your heart will b...

This is a good story not very well told.
From the start I didn’t connect with Rosie, I think it’s because the title and book cover made me think I will get a quirky fun read. What I got was a manic woman who is smothering her children with love and letting them run wild.
The kids themselves...
