We don't know how lucky we are when we are raised by normal parents...do we?

When you pair the two novels together, The Glass Castle and Half Broke Horses you get a lot to decide about the family. It is amazing that Jeannette Wells turned out as well as she did. Not sure many families would have been that lucky. Jeannette Walls mother, Rosemary just was not only a very independent person, artistic but very easily led and dependent on Rex. Think her mother Lily would have rolled over in her grave several times if she had known about how Rosemary was living. Don't think Rosemary ever regretted anything and thought she and Rex were right about how they lived their lives. All along, they could have had an easier life, they had property and a small income that would have done this.
