All 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, Rose still has an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and is sure she and her loved ones deserve a better life. Can she open the door and seize the chance to make something of herself? Told with humour, warmth and love, THE OPEN DOOR is the first in a trilogy following the lives of Rose and her family.
