Told with the emotional impact of Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, this powerful debut is at once beguiling and heartbreaking. Rosie Coloured Glasses is a novel about the important things in life, about a young person's struggle to make sense of a world of extremes - extreme loneliness and extreme love - and about how the human heart may break, yet still have the capacity to heal and the resiliency to love again.
Seeing the world through Rosie Coloured Glasses
Just as opposites attract, they can also cause friction, and no one feels that friction more than Rex and Rosie's daughter, Willow. Rex is serious and unsentimental and tapes checklists of chores on Willow's bedroom door. Rosie is sparkling and enchanting and meets Willow in their treehouse in the middle of the night to feast on candy.
After Rex and Rosie's divorce, Willow finds herself navigating their two different worlds. She is clearly under the spell of her exciting, fun–loving mother. But as Rosie's behaviour becomes more turbulent, the darker underpinnings of her manic love are revealed.
Rex had removed his Rosie coloured glasses long ago, but will Willow do the same?
Whimsical, heartbreaking and uplifting, this is a novel about the many ways love can find you. Rosie Coloured Glasses triumphs with the most endearing examples of how mothers and fathers and sons and daughters bend for one another.
