The Recovery of Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel

Title: The Recovery of Rose Gold
Author: Stephanie Wrobel
Publication Date: March 2020

For the first eighteen years of her life, Rose Gold Watts believed she was seriously ill. She was allergic to everything, used a wheelchair and practically lived at the hospital. Neighbors did all they could, holding fundraisers but no matter how many doctors, tests, or surgeries, no one could figure out what was wrong with Rose Gold.

Turns out her mom, Patty Watts, was just a really good liar.

After serving five years in prison, Patty begs her daughter to take her in. The entire community is shocked when Rose Gold says yes. And Rose Gold is no longer her weak little darling...

And she's waited such a long time for her mother to come home.
First, it started out really interesting. The premise of this book was really intriguing to me ever since I heard about the controversial case of Gypsy Rose Blancharde and her mother, Dee Dee. However, the execution was extremely disappointing. I lost thought after a few chapters and totally lost the function to understand and totally connect with the characters at the middle of the story.

Overall, this book was just not my cup of tea. There are some interesting parts in the book, but for the most part it was really predictable and seemed to drag a lot. I have seen a lot of other really great feedbacks about this book, so it may still be worth checking out.

Thank You so much @times.reads for the complimentary copy of this book!
