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?

    I am a regular busy 50 something woman who really loves being able to listen to great stories while I am walking the dog or working at home.

    "Good reviews , did I miss something?"

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