Sixteen years after Mary Jay is incarcerated in the workhouse she is apprenticed out to the Bennetts farm on Dartmoor. She has no idea it is only a few miles from where she was born, or that she will be returning to the vicinity of the man who darkened her mothers last days. Though the novel depicts the grim reality of a time when life was terribly hard for the common people, especially for women, and though dark tragedy mars its unfolding, Marys Child is a moving, even hopeful, book. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Reviewed by Jane Bowers for Romance Reviews Today.
