Read from March 25 to 27, 2012

This was an interesting historical novel of 1649-1650 London. The punishment for having a bastard child, and then killing it to escape judgement, is death. Rachel, an apprentice glove maker, is charged with this crime. The question is did she do it, or did the infant die during the delivery. The story highlights Rachel's courage in dealing with her dire circumstances and the moral failures of those around her. It was a good story and I recommend it particularly to anyone enjoying the era and the societal issues of this time.
