A HEARTWARMING AND UPLIFTING TALE FOR FANS OF CATHERINE COOKSON AND LESLEY PEARSE
On the dark, rough streets of London in 1913, can one girl find the courage to open the door to her destiny?
Little Rose Webster's life has never been easy. Born in the slums of Bermondsey she has longed to escape her poor upbringing and violent step-father.
But it's hard to escape these deprived streets . . .
Thankfully she has a quick mind and her insatiable thirst for knowledge means she excels at school - so perhaps she has a chance at a brighter future.
But Rose's dreams are shattered when she is forced to leave school and find work, leaving her with nothing to cling to but hope.
And as a dark figure from her past threatens further turmoil, this winter's child fears she will never see the spring . . .
