The Wet Nurse's Tale
[a Novel]Book - 2009
Susan Rose is no average protagonist: she's scheming, promiscuous, plump, smart, funny, tender and entirely lovable. Like many working-class women in Victorian England she was born into a world that offered very few opportunities for the poor and unlovely. But Susan is the kind of plucky heroine who seeks her fortune, and finds it - with a little help from her breasts. As a professional wet nurse, she breastfeeds the children of healthy women who can't or won't nurse their own babies. But when her own child is sold by her father, Susan embarks on a rescue mission.
