This novella is unique in how it travels between 120 years of two women. The Bastard Child has beautiful elements of empowerment, love, faith and trust. I enjoyed the variety of colorful characters, the plot and the surprise ending and Susan Parker Rosen writes with great detail to richly develop the entire story. Her vivid dialogue with expression of emotions that take you into their thoughts and make you feel them deeply. Overall I found The Bastard Child an engrossing, and a compelling read. I highly recommend it.

The Bastard Child is an imaginative creation connecting past and present. Two women separated by 120 years? Is it possible?
This historical story takes your through unpredictable twists and turns that will make you believe, then question your level of sanity!
I loved learning about the Victoria era, and the deep dark secrets hidden between Sara and Bessie, and time.
An excellent story I recommend reading. NICELY DONE!
