The Midwife's Tale

Martha Cade comes from a long line of midwives who have served the families of Trinity, Pennsylvania, for generations. A widow with two grown children, she's hopeful that her daughter will follow in her footsteps. But when Victoria runs off, Martha's world is shattered.

Worse, a new doctor has arrived in town, threatening her job, and she can't remember a time when her faith was more tested. Still determined to do the work she knows God intended for her, Martha is unprepared for all that waits ahead. Whether it's trying to stop a town scandal, mending broken relationships, or feeling the first whispers of an unexpected romance, she faces every trial and every opportunity with hope and faith.

Cafe Lily's Review:

I enjoyed this book, mostly because the subject matter interested me a great deal.  I love almost anything historical, and this book provides an interesting look into midwifery.  I liked that the author didn't shy away from accurate descriptions and terms, yet kept it very tasteful.

The romance in the book was "so-so" for me - the ending was a bit abrupt.  The characters were okay, yet other than the midwifery information, there wasn't anything out of the ordinary that made this book stand out for me.  I enjoyed reading it, however it wasn't one of my favorite books so far this year.

Readers should note, this book is actually a reprint from 2002 - the cover has been updated.
