Rose is the author of the popular book, Promises of Home - Stories of Canada's British Home Children. Between 1869 and 1939 Canada immigrated 100,000 children from the U.K. Rose's grandmother, Grace Griffin Galbraith, was a "Home Child." She came to Canada at eight years of age to work as an indentured servant. Many Canadians are only now finding out that they are the descendant of one, or more, of Canada's little immigrants. It is important to tell the stories of these children.

Rose is married to Doug and lives in Caledonia, Ontario. She has three adult children.
