Clover lives in a grimy backstreet of Victorian London with six younger siblings, her weary father and his sharp-tongued second wife.
Devoted to her sister Megs, Clover is quick to learn her letters and she loves to paint and draw. But, despite her talents, she is condemned to life as a household skivvy.
Then a chance meeting with an artist gives her an inspiring glimpse of another world – and an idea of how she might find it.
The story has a guest appearance from Hetty Feather.
