Life is not easy for the village-folk in the province of Oakvale. Keeping warm, dry and having enough to eat can be a full-time job by itself. In the village of Hay, no one knows this more than the beautiful but incredibly poor Bella. Ever since she was a child, she has faced each day hoping to earn enough to buy even the most meagre supply of food. Yet she hasn’t let her misfortunes drag her down.
Each morning the townsfolk can see her wandering the village square selling her flowers. Calling out to the busy merchants, farmers and travellers to buy one of natures colourful artworks. As seasons change, so too do her wares. Yet the flower she prizes more than any other – the flower that always fetches the highest price – is the exotic and hypnotising flower known as the rose.
