Publisher Description

An influenza epidemic in 1840s London.
Six orphaned children.
And a girl who is determined to live out her mother's dream…


At the age of 12, a grieving Rosey Shaw is devastated to find that she cannot carry out a promise made to her dying mother: to take care of her brothers and sisters.

Her father's business partner tells her that her father left huge debts, and says he cannot afford to look after them. Rosey and her little family are sent to live with her father's brother in the slums of Westminster, and before she has been there even a day things go from bad to worse.  

Their uncle is cruel, greedy and impatient; their cousins are vindictive, and their aunt a cranky slattern. Their lives are a complete misery as they struggle to survive on the unforgiving streets.

Rosey and her brother George, starving and browbeaten, vow that no matter how long it takes, they will fight their way out from under their uncle's control and find their missing brother and sisters. But fate is unkind, and Rosey has to struggle with doubts and setbacks at every turn…
