Jacqueline Wilson has an extraordinary ability to understand and empathise with the hopes, dreams and concerns of her readership, and Rose Rivers proves once more that she can pull this feat off just as well in period garb as modern dress. Characters from Wilson’s previous Victorian novels make reappearances in this winning story about battling against constraint and following your dreams.
Rose Rivers lives in a beautiful house with her artist father, her difficult, fragile mother and her many siblings. She has everything money can buy - beautiful dresses, horse-riding lessons, books - but still she's not satisfied, troubled by her schooling, her inability to be a wonderful artist like her father and (most troubling of all) why life so unfair for people who were not born rich.
When a young Clover Moon joins the household as a nursemaid to Rose's troubled sister Beth, Rose finds a true friend for the first time. Gradually, she begins to learn more about the world outside; between them both, can they help each other achieve their dreams?
In 2009, the wonderful Jacqueline Wilson struck gold once again with Hetty Feather, the story of a young Victorian girl abandoned to London’s Foundling Hospital. Six further novels have explored the universe of Hetty, including 2016’s Clover Moon, a character so popular readers have been desperate to discover what happens next. Illustrated by long-time collaborator Nick Sharratt, Rose Rivers is set to reveal all.
