Synopsis

Nobody's Child by Valerie Wood

When Laura Page goes to the remote village of Welwick, it is to try to discover the mystery of her mother Susannah’s early life. Now a successful businesswoman in Hull, Susannah never speaks of her childhood, when she was brought up with the terrible stigma of bastardy – of being nobody’s child.

Born into poverty, living in a tiny labourer’s cottage with her father, Susannah’s mother had caught the eye of the local landowner’s son. She was his one and only great love, but when their daughter Susannah was born he was unable to acknowledge her as his child. As the years passed and Laura in her turn became curious about her mother’s past, would she ever uncover the truth about that far off family tragedy?
