The Stolen Child by Jennie Felton
In an very good condition. Some creasing to the spine. See photos for more details.
When Stella Swift is discovered holding a shard of broken glass near her newborn baby boy, fears that she might harm William result in her being taken to Catcombe – the local asylum. Although the regime is not as harsh as it once was, it’s not somewhere that Tom wants to send his wife – but he has no choice.
Turning to his kind-hearted sister-in-law Grace for help taking care of his other three children whilst he keeps working at the mine seems like the simplest solution until Stella is well – if only there wasn’t the shared history between Tom and Grace …
At first Catcombe seems to offer the respite Stella needs – until one day she becomes convinced that the baby the nurses have given to her is not William. Is Stella losing her mind?
Or is it true that a mother will always know her own child?
