Rose Rivers

Summary

'It's not fair. We can't help being girls, can we?'

Rose Rivers lives in a beautiful house with her artist father, her difficult, fragile mother and her many siblings. She has everything money can buy - but she feels as though life isn't fair for girls and poor people.

Why can't she be educated at school like her brother?
Why can't she learn to become a famous artist like her father?
Why is life so unfair for people who were not born rich?

When a young girl, Clover Moon, joins the household as a nursemaid to Rose's troubled sister Beth, and she meets her father's bohemian protégé Paris Walker, she starts to learn more about the wider world.

Will Paris help Rose finally achieve her dreams? And will she be able to help Clover find her own dream?
