Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

This is the wonderful story of Rose Campbell, whom we first meet as a sickly and despondent 13-year-old orphan. She is grieving for her recently dead parents, and she tends to get the vapors and other Victorian women's ailments. Nevertheless, this shy, frail and delicate creature is sent to live on the "Aunt Hill" to be raised by six very opinionated aunts.

Laura

This book is wonderfully entertaining and would be a treat for any young girl to read. The character of Rose provides a good, moral role-model while retaining the believable humanity of normal childhood. The book is brilliantly written, and the author shows throughout it a wonderfully sensitive insight into the heart and soul of a child.
