* UPDATE - THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED - Winners announced here *
I really loved Mary Hooper's newest book Velvet so I'm very excited to be taking part in the blog tour to celebrate it's release. If you haven't already read it you can find my review of Velvet here, it's a fantastic story set in the Victorian era about a young girl who is employed by a clairvoyant but soon finds out that not everything about her new job is what it first seemed.
Raised to the status of Lady's maid, Velvet is given elegant clothes to wear and is brought to live in a grand house in London. But the longer she works for Madame Savoya, the more she discovers about the mysterious world of a spiritual medium. Velvet soon realises that her employer is not quite what she seems and that this knowledge could put her very life in danger . . .

I'm going to hand you over to Mary Hooper who has written a really interesting guest post for us about Baby Farms. I had never heard of Baby Farms before reading Velvet but they are a truly horrific part of our history - I'm glad they no longer exist but it is quite frightening that this kind of thing was still happening in England just over 100 years ago!
