Born into squalor, young Susan Lucket is determined to raise herself above the poverty of her childhood. Discovering she has a natural talent for nursing, she forges a new life for herself—and as an independent, unmarried midwife, she is a woman far ahead of her time. But when Edward Calthorpe, youngest son of the privileged landowner, offers her marriage, the memory of her terrible childhood returns to haunt her.

From the Inside Flap:

Born into squalor, young Susan Lucket is determined to raise herself from her humble origins. Sent to the village school and later taught midwifery, her intuitive skill at assisting women in childbirth leads to demands on her services and as an independent and unmarried midwife she is far ahead of her time.

Yet when privileged Edward Calthorpe, offers her marriage, the memory of her degraded childhood returns to haunt her: and the seduction and betrayal of her younger sister by Edward?s brother causes deep divisions between her and his family.

About the Author:

Maggie Bennett was born in Hampshire. When she left school at eighteen she started general nursing training and, after a year as a staff nurse, she went on to train as a midwife. Her first novel, A Child’s Voice Calling , was published by Arrow in 2002.
