In a historical setting similar to that of Jane Austen, a young gentlewomen is sent to a lying in hospital for unwed expectant mothers. Though the daughter of a pastor and a proper upbringing, she finds herself exposed to quite a different side of life due to her indiscretion. She has to depend on the generousity of others to survive, and make a heart wrenching decision about her baby. She also learns quite a bit about the duties of a milk-nurse, as she turns to that profession to support herself. Despite her circumstances, she also ends up with a choices to make between several potential suitors. This was a very enjoyable read, what I like best about it is the historical details and feel and the emotional ups and downs of the story.
