Reminiscent of Austen or Bronte

If you like Jane Austen, you'd like this book. A little romance, a little intrigue, less witty dialogue than an Austen book, but plenty of insight into the plight of unwed mothers in Regency England. As an adoptive mother, I was deeply touched by how the author so adeptly conveyed the main character's heart-wrenching choice of whether to keep her baby and raise him in poverty, or give him up to a better life. This side of the story is rarely examined, even in adoption stories today.

History I have never known

Loved the story line, I was surprised to learn a lot about birthing and wet nursing that I have never known.
