is introducing

The Midwife’s Tale

Bethany House Publishers (June 2, 2015)


Delia Parr


Delia Parr is the author of sixteen historical and inspirational historical romance novels, including Hearts Awakening, Love's First Bloom, and Hidden Affections. The mother of three grown children, she was a long-time high school teacher in southern New Jersey before retiring to Florida.


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-I found this delightful book to be written in a somewhat different vein than Delia Parr's previous books but it did not stop me from devouring it at all. The story is told from the eyes of a midwife in the early 1800's and some parts might be a bit in detail for a few but I was intrigued by the doctoring that was done. Not only did she help birthing babies but also dealt with herbs and potions to nurse others to health. The regular doctor who arrives in town I was somewhat hesitant over at first but I think he showed his true character at the end. A wonderful historical novel with some mystery and a slight romance that you will thoroughly enjoy!
