A wonderful new story starring old friends and new from the much-beloved Victorian world of Hetty Feather.
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 – beautiful dresses, horse-riding lessons, books – but she’s not satisfied. Why can’t she be sent away to a good school like her twin brother? Why can’t she learn to become a famous artist like her father or his friend Paris Walker. 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, Rose finds a true friend for the first time and she starts to learn more about the world outside. Will Rose finally achieve her dreams? And will she be able to help Clover find her own dream?
Beautifully illustrated by Nick Sharratt, Rose Rivers is a brilliant new addition to Hetty Feather’s world, by the award-winning and bestselling Jacqueline Wilson.
