Rosalie Berwick (VAD)

Rosalie actively embraces and follows the rules without question but the world is changing and it’s not always possible to conform.

The opportunity to work in France proved to be Rosalie’s escape route from the burden of being unmarried and seemingly left on the shelf.

When it comes to the more domestic tasks she is in her element but her closeted life at home has left her socially inexperienced and insecure.

She may appear to be the perfect VAD but in reality, the constant challenges of life at the front terrify her.

She’s been raised in the old ways, can she embrace the new?
