A family saga perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin

All she wanted was a loving family . . .
When young Rose Sharpe is forced to leave school at the age of fourteen, her dreams of independence are left in tatters. With little help from her ailing mother, it’s up to Rose to protect her young sister from their domineering father and run the household.

Just as she’s given up all hope of a better life, Rose discovers she has a secret admirer. Although the future she’s hoped for finally seems to be in reach, Rose is torn between following her heart and abandoning the sister who needs her. Will Rose ever be able to live the life she dreams of, or will her duty to her family mean she is destined to lose the man she loves?

A heartwarming and gritty family saga for fans of Dilly Court and Katie Flynn.
