The Amish Midwife


There seems to be no shortage of Amish fiction these days, and for those who love this genre that's a good (gut)  thing!  I really enjoyed reading The Amish Midwife and found it very interesting. 

While it does touch on Amish and Mennonite culture, it also includes mystery, suspense, romance, and so much more.  I thought it was a fantastic combination of many subjects and very well written.  The characters are interesting and believable and overall this is a great read.  Everything tied together very nicely and although there were several stories within a story, this book is easy to read and follow.

This book was provided free for review by Harvest House Publishers

From The Publisher
A dusty carved box containing two locks of hair and a century-old letter regarding property in Switzerland, and a burning desire to learn about her biological family lead nurse-midwife Lexie Jaeger from her home in Oregon to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. There she meets Marta Bayer, a mysterious lay-midwife who desperately needs help after an Amish client and her baby die.

Lexie steps in to assume Marta’s patient load even as she continues the search for her birth family, and from her patients she learns the true meaning of the Pennsylvania Dutch word demut, which means “to let be” as she changes from a woman who wants to control everything to a woman who depends on God.

A compelling story about a search for identity and the ability to trust that God securely holds our whole life—past, present, and future.
