Editors Note The year is 1900 and orphaned 14-year-old Rosetta and her beloved younger sister Flora sail from England as "home girls". They are sent to Canada so that they can have a chance at family life. But their dreams are shattered when Flora is adopted but Rosetta is deemed to be too old. She is to become a farm worker, far from Flora's new home. Rosetta's only dream is to find her sister. But slowly and against her will, she is drawn into the lives of the strange couple with whom she has been placed. It is soon clear to her that their home is full of fear and sorrow. As her relationship develops with the farmer's wife, Rosetta learns that true sisterhood can take many forms. The support the two young women offer one another makes each one stronger until they find a way to follow their dreams. Based on extensive research into the fate of home children, Linda Holeman has written a powerful, mature novel about an unforgettable character.
