Rose Rivers By Jacqueline Wilson (Paperback)
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.
