A deeply moving, haunting, yet beautiful account of the strength and fortitude of a mother and child. A tale of the injustices, sexism and hardship of an unwed pregnant Quaker woman in 1883 Philadelphia that weaves beautiful prose on mothering an infant with rich historical-based fiction. I couldn't put it (or my own baby) down.
