Rose and her stepmother Flo live in Hanratty - across the bridge from the 'good' part of town. Rose, alternately fascinated and appalled by the rude energy of the people around her, grows up nursing her hope of outgrowing her humble beginnings and plotting to escape to university, where she achieves her own equivocal success in the larger world This 1984 Penguin (Non-Classics) Paperback is in Fair condition.
