The Christmas rose

The Christmas rose

Court, Dilly, author

As the ship glided into the harbour, guided by the wintery waters of the Thames, Rose took a deep breath. Had she done the right thing? Leaving everything behind her to follow the man she loved? But as London refused to appear through the thick fog that engulfed it, Rose felt more lonely than ever. Raised in Australia, Rose Munday is on the way back to the city she was born in. But, expecting to be met by her sweetheart, she is left alone on the waterfront, surrounded by whistles and scornful glances, chilled by the east wind coming off the docks. How could Max have abandoned her? With no money and no family left in London, Rose must go to work. Finding herself a position as a typist in a slowly modernising London, Rose's future begins to take shape in ways she would never have foreseen
