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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast paced and wild ride June 19 2014
By Mo Birch - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Bastard Child was a wild ride from start to finish. I got swept up into this amazing tale of mystery and suspense, of romance and action. The story sinks its hooks in you from page one and doesn’t let go. I just couldn't put it down, I found myself turning pages at 4:00 o'clock in the morning!

Occasionally funny and witty, the author is able to expertly weave the various scenes into a complex narrative that constantly keeps you at the edge of your seat. While there were a few grammatical errors here and there, it wasn't enough to detract me from the story. I can't wait to see what Susan Parker Rosen writes next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense, romance, mystery June 6 2014
By Jeff B - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Susan Parker Rosen's “The Bastard Child” weaves mystery, romance, and suspense seamlessly in this debut novella. The main character, Sara, is on a journey of discovery. Arriving in a quaint, storybook town in the UK, Sara hopes to uncover the secrets behind some of her family's greatest mysteries. Rosen's greatest gift is her power to describe people and events with such detail that you are transported out of time. The dialogue, too, is well-crafted, especially for a debut. Fans of the mystery-romance genre will enjoy this quick read, and may fast find Rosen becoming their favorite guilty pleasure.
