After the death of her father, thirteen-year-old Rose Campbell is sent to live at "Aunt Hill" in Boston, a house teeming with not only her maiden great aunts, but also seven spirited male cousins. It's no easy task for Rose to get used to the mayhem after being in a girls' boarding school, but when her uncle Alec returns from overseas, he gives her the confidence to stretch her wings. Motherless most of her life, Rose now finds comfort in the embrace of her aunts--and the beginning of a lifelong friendship with Phebe Moore, the young kitchen maid.
