A long, long time ago in a far away place (Oh okay, Albany Western Australia) at 18 years old, her mother became an 'unmarried mother'. Banished to the country, she worked as a barmaid in the hotel. One day, She fell down the stairs and thought that was the cause of her pain.
Little did she realise Victoria Rose was about to burst into the world. And burst she did ...
Sadly, her uncelebrated entry into the physical world set the tone for an uncelebrated life.
Growing up in an environment of secrets, shame and struggle her future happiness looked unlikely.
Then one day, she decided to do something different.
