The Midwife

Masquerading as Rhoda Mammau, Mennonite midwife, Beth Winslow is definetly trying to hide from her past of hurt and rejection and loss. Nestled in small town Tennessee, she attends to unwed mothers in need of a place to stay, and to give birth. Out here, no one can remind her of the mistakes she made with her own pregnancies, or remind her that she did experience love, albeit with a broken heart. But just like anything else in life, you can't hide from it forever. When a man from her past shows up at her door, her raw emotions are opened anew. She is confronted with her past and given a chance to put it all there, in the past, and make a new life for herself. Will she do just thT? Seek the healing she has desperately needed all these years. Or will she cling to the past like an old friend and stay exactly where she has been since that night she lost so much? This was a good book. It was a little slow going for me, but once I got into I really enjoyed the story. The author did a great job weaving an interesting storyline throughout the book. The characters were believable and I was intrigued through out the book as to the final outcome. I definetly would like to read her other works. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
