Rosethorn by Ava Zavora


Serafina, or Sera, starts out as a teenager working at a neighbor’s house to save up money. Another of the kids that works there, Andrew, is a complete asshole to her at first. One day, he steals her notebook that he always saw her writing in and she doesn’t realize it until he starts reciting some of her poetry.

Things smooth over between the two as time goes and they end up in a tumultuous relationship. Their relationship starts and ends several times before it comes to the present. Sera has a new boyfriend who is living in Italy and wants her to move there with him. She agrees but has to go back home to sort out her affairs and to make peace with her past.

She goes to Rosethorn, a mansion, that was hers and Andrew’s spot. She is shocked to see him there working on the house. She realizes that he’s bought the house and isn’t happy about it. Because he’s holding onto the past. But then things come up between them and they end up back together, for a few nights.



This was a good book. It would be nice if there has been clear hints whether you were in Sera’s time or back in Stella’s, her mother. It goes back and forth and takes a little getting used to but it is a good book otherwise.
