Product description

Product Description

Unwed motherhood in Victorian England spells the end--your chances of marrying, chances even of working, disappear. Unless you can somehow "disappear" the evidence...

That's where "baby farmers" Amelia and Margaret come in. They'll care for your unwanted infant--for a fee.

But what are they really doing with the babies? When the police find dozens of tickets for pawned baby clothes and no evidence of the babies themselves, Amelia and Margaret become wanted women, and the life of a newborn hangs in the balance.

This is a short story.

5.0 out of 5 stars She put the baby where???? 20 January 2015
By Barbara Smith - Published on Amazon.com

This definitely is a premise worth expanding. Won't spoil it, but glad about the ending. Was a big disconcerted by the beginning. Seemed very unlike other MeiLin Miranda works. But it all came together in typical fashion, and I'm glad of it. Do expand on these characters!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh Yeah! 27 December 2011

The storyline kept me guessing (literally) until near the end. First I thought cannibals, then... nope, can't go there. It would spoil the tale.

No typos, punctuation was good, etc. It's short, so just read it already!

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and awesome 29 December 2011

If you have a short commute or coffee break, this is the story to read during. It also has some nice, subtle appeals to things like culture shock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps you guessing! 1 January 2012
By Gabriel Gadfly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a great short story. Miranda has a knack for twisting and turning your opinions about the characters -- I wasn't sure whether or not their intentions and motivations were honorable until the end. For such a short work, their personalities are very well-developed. Dalston Junction is a fantastic short read, perfect for when you want something small and crunchy without the heft of a novel.
