Free Gift For You: Maggie’s Child

Today I am giving away the ebook of one of my books. I am celebrating returning home to the UK to be with my children, (well, my girls as my boy lives in Canada), anyway, I decided to offer a gift to my readers around the world to celebrate family life. Maggie has a hard life, and one child is very special to her, so I offer you this as the free gift.

Quick, today only, spread the word! MAGGIE’S CHILD FREE GIFT AT AMAZON (LINK TO ALL COUNTRIES)


When farmer’s wife Maggie Sawbury gives birth to her fifth child, the only one that has lived and the result of an extra-marital affair, she is heartbroken and desperate. Maggie knows her joyless life with a bully of a husband is not one a child should endure, and she leaves the baby at the roadside to be found by passers-by.

Her money-driven husband announces he has found her another job in the village of Redgrave, aside from the many tasks she has on Windtop farm. He is totally unaware the position comes with a secret. One that frightens and yet brings joy to Maggie. She is to become wet-nurse to her abandoned child.

Love, and the possibility of incest, threaten to open old wounds, and Maggie has several decisions to make. However, will they be the right ones? If she tells all she knows, it will bring about the destruction of three families. Equally, her silence could be just as destructive. She shares her secret with another, the result changes her life, and a death brings with it more secrets. Will Maggie stay or will she walk away and find the love she craves?

    Thanks for the chance. I would love to read your book. Will you kindly send it to my id ( please as I don’t have an Amazon account?

    • Glynis Smy says:

      Simi, I will hunt out the file, as I am not adding it to Smashwords, and I know you use that site. None of my books will be uploaded there again. I will gift you the book as a one off but any others will have to be downloaded via Amazon to keep my figures accurate. I am sure you understand. HUGE, THANKS, for enjoying my books, and hope you love Maggie. πŸ™‚ β™₯
