The Open DoorBook - 2015
A heart-warming novel in the tradition of Catherine Cookson from an exciting new storyteller. In her short life, eleven-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? Told with love, warmth and humour, THE OPEN DOOR is the first in a trilogy following the lives of gutsy, passionate Rose and her family.
