Publisher's Summary

All her short life, 11-year-old Rose Webster has encountered closed doors. Growing up in the slums of London with her siblings, trying to avoid their violent, drunken father, she develops an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and becomes convinced that she and her loved ones deserve better. All Rose has is a quick mind and the will to survive. Can she open that door and seize the chance to make something of herself?

annie aldington once again makes the book

i am still listening to this book and i must say it is wonderful. A bit of Catherine Cookson genre easy to follow with lots of plot twist i would definately recommend for an easy listen

Good reviews , did I miss something?

I found the story slow, and the narration was not an easy listen for me.
Not for me.

Disappointed

After reading one of Beryls books and loving it I thought I’d read her first but not for me sadly!
