Product Description

"Susan Parker Rosen has spun a yarn that was alarming, spooky, mysterious, and action packed!"

Take the exciting journey, along with Sara, as she embarks upon a surprise visit to the storybook town of Bridgnorth, UK. She travels initially to research handed down mysterious stories, that includes a secret wealthy ancestor from the Victorian Age and an unwed ancestor that was missing! As Sara struggles with old ghosts from her family tree, you will become intrigued as the author allows readers to unveil some of those heartbreaking answers from the past, including the horrors of the Magdalene Laundries. Follow Sara's hopes and dreams as she falls in love with a man who engulfs her and presents her with a new life in the UK. Hold on to your seat as you are about to take a roller coaster ride along with Sara in the action packed twisted ending.

This was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad I purchased it. I was totally caught up in Sara's life as she searched or answers. Would love a sequel from Susan!! I'd say your first novel was a hit!! Definitely worth the read.

This book has the most amazing ending to a story that started out with a women who traced her family tree and then the fun begins,,, Its a must read if your looking for something a little different,, I love how she takes you back to the Victorian era and describes it in a way which you almost believe your there with poor Bessie,, what are some of these characters up to ? I gotta read on to find out and I'm glad I did,, Its a must read ,, Rick

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read that I wasn't expecting Jan. 24 2014
By N.KING - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
With a title like "The Bastard Child" I was concerned of what I was getting myself into. I have harsh memories of the word "Bastard" after I called my brother that in front of my father. However, as the cliché goes, don't ever judge a book by it's cover, or by it's title for that matter. The Bastard Child started slow but quickly became a page turner. Early on you think you figure out the plot of the story and what the ending result will be and with a turn of a page the game changes and you find yourself questioning your original thought process.

I sometimes found parts jumpy and difficult to follow but still enjoyed the read. As someone who reads on a daily basis this was quite the refreshing and easy read that was done in one nights time. I encourage avid readers that want something different on their Kindle to take a chance on this book. You may find yourself surprised as I was!

3.0 out of 5 stars good storyline Oct. 24 2013
By Susan C. Beck - Published on

This book has a good storyline (I love genealogy too) but was filled with too many errors to be an enjoyable read. If she fixes the flaws it will be much better.
