When the problem-child Dee Andrews runs away from her Knightsbridge home to see her father in his City office, she starts a chain of events which involve Janet Sandison in the life and loves of her step-mother Rose. The beautiful tawny-gold Rose; the cold-creamed Rose in her fantastically-ornate bedroom; the vulgarly 'frank' Rose who regales Janet with the intimate details of her love affair with such relish . . .
Yet for all her brashness, Rose exerts a curious charm which makes this one of the most engrossing of all the warmly human and popular stories about Janet Sandison and her engaging 'Friends'.
