    A unique read

    This was an interesting historical fiction that teaches about feminine issues of days gone by. If you've ever nursed a baby you will get a kick out of the descriptions presented here. If you've loved a child you will relate to Susan on at least one level.

    Good book, not great, but worth your time.

    I enjoyed this book, thought the ending a bit strange but overall, well worth my time

    Hurrah for the "Lower Classes" heroine, Susan Rose!

    There is nothing more delightful than to be drawn into a story by the language. Through sentence structure, cadence, and subtle humor, Erica Eisdorfer places the reader securely in the Victorian era of Susan Rose's exploits.

    Born into a large family of the lower class, Susan Rose, like her older siblings before her, must work at whatever task comes to hand for the needs of such a large family demand it as does her father's need for drink. In her small village that means a job at the Great House.

    Unschooled though she may be, Susan Rose is intelligent. She observes and learns and is intuitive about the lives and actions of those around her, including her betters. She considers herself a "good girl" throughout the story but she allows her compassion and desire to override her intelligence and she becomes caught up in scandal. When it best suits her, she lies easily and unashamedly and connives to manipulate matters to her own ends. For in Susan Rose's opinion it does not make her a bad person when she must do what is necessary.

    This is a well written tale filled with sly humor and it gives the reader a look into the not-so-virtuous lives of the underclass of English society in the Victorian era. Susan Rose is not one for self pity despite the circumstances of her life and she isn't afraid to do the nasty if necessary in order to survive and thrive.

    Tyler

    He glanced arounf, eventually spotting the girl. He walked over to her, cautiously. "Hey... what are you doing out here? It's getting late?" he asked as he approached her.
