{{Book Review}} A 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 has been tested more. 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 Review*

This is my first time reading anything by Delia Parr. It is a nice historical read, if you are into historical fiction type books.

I just wish that the author would have given more information about being a midwife in that time period. I really loved the characters and and how developed they were, which drew you into their lives. There were a few times that this book felt that it was progressing slowly, but there are enough twists and turns to keep you wanting to read this book until the last page. It was a great read overall. I am anxious to see what the next book has in store. I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction.
