Rosie Goodwin, like most working-class children in 1909, is sent out to work as a nursemaid as soon as she is twelve years old, and from then on she sees her family only once a year, on Mothering Sunday. She must grow up fast. Intelligent and courageous, she vows to change her life as soon as she can. Life will interrupt, however, and soon she will have to face the horrors of WWI, followed by the crushing poverty of the Twenties and Thirties – there are hard times ahead of her.
