Reviews

"Wolfson's writing is superb. Without so much as dipping a toe into cliche territory, her heady descriptions of love will curl into readers' souls. With a simplistic elegance to her prose, the author delivers a treasure of a read." -The Washington Post

"Rosie Colored Glasses begins with love, imagination and wonder, then slides into haunting loss and longing, but oh, how love remains and bursts forth to fill the story."
-CAROL FITZGERALD, Bookreporter

"Brianna Wilson has done a marvelous and generous thing by writing Rosie Colored Glasses. I followed Willow with a hopeful, breaking heart, reminded how all of us, daughters, mothers, parents, children, are 'different' in so many ways, and yet so beautiful and absolutely deserving of giving and receiving our love."
-NANCY THAYER, New York Times bestselling author of Secrets in Summer

"Rosie Colored Glasses is tender and bright, a compelling novel of a young girl (who completely owned my heart) and the mother she adores and fears and needs so badly. Brianna Wolfson is a wonderful writer. She has captured so brilliantly the demons and angels of mental illness, love and longing."
-LUANNE RICE, New York Times bestselling author of The Beautiful

"Rosie Colored Glasses is a bittersweet, tender exploration of many kinds of love. This compelling novel, with unpredictable turns, reveals what love can save and what it can't."
-HELEN KLEIN ROSS, award-winning author of The Latecomers

"Heartbreaking and beautiful all at once... a stained glass window pieced together from shards of broken family life that create an illuminated picture of what it means to survive one's childhood."
-BUNMI LADITAN, author of Confessions of a Domestic Failure

"A great debut ... Brianna Wolfson's Rosie Colored Glasses has a voice that is irresistible."
-J.P. MONNINGER, award winning author of The Map That Leads to You

"What a wonderful, emotional ride! It's like the Ordinary People of the 21st century...such an achievement!"
-ROBYN CARR, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Summer That Made Us

"While sadness hides behind the beautiful language, the idea that children see their parents through rose-colored glasses will resonate with readers beyond the last page."
-Booklist
