Being a twenty-two-year-old wallflower in 1966 London wasn't easy, and for Rosemary being in love with Bertie (her work colleague and best friend of seventeen years) was harder yet. Bertie has no idea of Rosemary's true feelings for him because she's too afraid to open-up, for fear of losing him altogether. Another problem for Rosemary is that Bertie is a criminal. Bertie is a homosexual man in a time when this is not just frowned upon, but illegal. If arrested for Gross Indecency, Bertie could be prosecuted and sent to prison for up to two years. To make matters worse Bertie is in a relationship with Rosemary's nemesis, and their factory boss, James. And If Rosemary didn't have enough on her plate already, she'd probably be more able to handle the abuse she regularly receives from factory 'skirt' and general 'goodtime girl' Babs, who's always accompanied by her two cronies Ruth and Brenda. What is a girl to do? These characters and events are based on real stories, tens of thousands of them.
