The Open Door by Beryl Matthews
In a good condition. Some creasing to the spine and cover. See photos for more details.
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, she develops an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and becomes convinced that she and her loved ones deserve better.
All Rose has is a quick mind and the will to survive – can she open that door and seize the chance to make something of herself?
Told with love, warmth and humour, the story of gutsy, passionate Rose and her struggles is a truly absorbing read.
