It is a story about a little orphan girl, Rose, who has to go and live with her aunts, until her Uncle Alec, the one her father bequeathed her to, came to care for her. It seems that her father and Uncle Alec had some trouble once, and Uncle and Father kept away from each other for years. Finally, the last time they were together they made up, and the Father told Uncle that if he was forced to leave little Rose, he should bequeath his little girl to Uncle Alec as a token of his love. So that is why Uncle Alec is now in charge of Rose, along with all the Aunts and a few cousins to entertain her.
I have never read this book before so it will make a nice week-end read for me. It is a story for young adults and adults. A nice family story for all.

The book was a fun read. Life was a bit different in the 1800s. I always find it fun to read about life in the years of long ago. My how times have changed. I guess I will give this book 2.5 stars out of 5 ***** stars.
