The Wet Nurse's Tale, book review

The Wet Nurse's Tale
by Erica Eisdorfer

In the Wet Nurse's Tale be prepared for a good old fashioned laugh. Erica Eisdorfer invites you into the gripping life of Susan, a professional wet nurse. Susan does not in any way live a life of luxury, but yet, she does not feel sorry for herself, she is a strong, noble character, who at times makes some pretty serious mistakes but yet she carries on. From a maid in the "Big House" to a Wet Nurse Susan does as needed to survive. Caring for children, losing some, saving some, but when push comes to shove and she has her own child taken from her she faces the battle of regaining her child head on, will she succeed or be lost forever in the Sinister streets of London?

Great story line, a little confusing when you first read the 'Reasons' sections, but once you get into the book it all begins to make sense!
