A wonderful medieval short story. I really enjoyed this short read. Very well written and kept my attention the whole way through. I had been wanting to read some her work and this was a great way for me to do so.
I liked this one more than I thought I would, considering its short length. Regardless, the length really doesn't matter as long as I get a more than satisfactory ending. It was a pleasant enough read for me.
A wonderful charming medievel tale that was fast paced & keep my interest in the short novella. Was wonderfully written and fun read.

I found this to be a pleasant short read. It is a sweet romance set in Norman Britain with a touch of melodrama.
A good quick read.
Emma has just lost her husband. Newly married and pregnant, she now finds her self destitute and back living with her family. But rescue comes in the form of Lord Robert, a new widower himself, who hires her to be a wet nurse for his son.

This story was not what I was expecting. For one thing it was incredibly short. It also lacked depth. This might be, in part, due to the lack of length in the story. I enjoyed the story, but it felt hurried. There was so much that could have been done with this
Sweet story
