The Midwife's Tale by Delia Parr

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.

My opinion: This was an enjoyable read, I really liked the subject matter, midwives, having just had a baby and used a midwife myself. This book gets a glimpse into the rich world of midwives and how it was often times passed down from one generation to another. I really enjoyed the main characters and how the main character was actually a bit older which certainly isn't typical.
Filled with interesting characters, rich in historical detail and with an interesting subject, this book is a win/win and I highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
