The love child: a novel
Set in the northern English countryside that Catherine Cookson depicts so beautifully, this 19th-century saga tells of the romance of Nathaniel and Maria, who together have six children. They have never married, however, and their children are scorned and treated as outcasts. A dramatic portrait of a battle to overcome human cruelty and the restorative power of love.

Review: The Love ChildUser Review - Sue - Goodreads
I think Catherine Cookson wrote her books in the 50's, so it is a bit of a throwback. Set in England in the 1860's. Good plot and interesting characters. I enjoyed it! Read full review
