Must she choose loyalty over happiness?
January 1900. When her mother dies late in pregnancy, sixteen-year-old Rose resolves never to marry. She is resigned to a life of mind-numbing domestic work alongside her five siblings at Sawdons Hall.

A chance encounter with the charismatic Mr. Pritchard leads Rose to make a bid for freedom, against family wishes, by accepting a job at his new bookshop in the market town of Widdock.

Rose values her developing relationship with Mr. Pritchard and her strong female friendships, and her feelings for Mr. Pritchard deepen. But, just as she seems to have gained a free, independent life, family duty calls her home.

Will Rose ever find her own happiness?
