In 1912, twenty-year-old Tilly Harper leaves for London, to become assistant housemother at Mr. Shaw’s Home for Flower Girls. For years, the home has cared for London’s flower girls–orphaned and crippled children living on the grimy streets and selling flowers to survive. Tilly discovers a diary written by an orphan named Florrie–a young Irish flower girl who died of a broken heart after she and her sister, Rosie, were separated. Moved by Florrie’s pain and all she endured in her brief life, Tilly sets out to discover what happened to Rosie.
