Source text (Only use this to DPL): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38567When frail, sickly Rose Campbell is left an orphan following the death of her father, she comes to live with her eccentric bachelor uncle in a place she will come to know as “Aunt Hill”. There, she meets her six aunts, each of whom have conflicting ideas about how to raise their little niece and her seven rowdy boy cousins. Through Uncle Alec’s guidance, Rose begins a new milestone and acquires valuable lessons about health, education, and character building. As Rose begins to bloom with health and vitality, she finds new happiness and learns the importance of family love that “ties all bonds”. (Summary by DariaAM)
