The Cher Journal series invites readers into the intimate worlds of girls throughout different times in Canadian history. The ongoing series showcases Canada's most distinguished children authors who recreate some of the most dramatic events from our diverse history.

As the rest of the country gears up for Confederation, Rosie's life is about to be pulled apart. It's 1866. The year before Confederation. And the year Rosie's life turns upside-down. She has just gone into service with Mr. Bradley, a civil servant working in Quebec City, the bustling capital of the Province of Canada. When the capital is moved to the rough sawmill town of Ottawa, the Bradleys have to move there too. Rosie will desperately miss her own parents and siblings, and wonders if she will ever have a place in her own family again.
