  • A wonderful series

    I had not read any books by Edith Maxwell, but I found out she writes as Maddie Day as well, and I have read a couple books (which I love) under that name. I LOVED this book. It was so unique as the heroine was both Quaker and a midwife. The main characters are so well developed. I loved Rose, the heroine. She really lived her faith and was a blessing to so many people. I also liked that she turned information over to the police as soon as she discovered it. Kudos to the author for giving us the correct pronunciations to Gaelic and Polish names. I also liked that I did not figure out who the murderer was. This series is now on my must read list. Thank you to Netgalley and Beyond The Page Publishing for the copy. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Fantastic Fifth Novel in this Fabulous Series!

    A fantastic fifth mystery in this superb series, full of period details and so very enjoyable! As a friend, Rose Carroll has a fine moral compass; she believes in accepting everyone as they come so when disparaging comments are made about her friends she finds it quite offensive, and regards the accusers with disdain. Going about her normal midwifery duties, it's not long before she hears of another murder in the small town of Amesbury and despite trying to avoid being sucked in, soon finds herself pondering on who and why . . . I love this series! The details are limitless and reflect the impeccable research which the author obviously undertakes. Perfect for the period it's set in, I never fail to be mesmerised with life in the 19th century and Rose's forward thinking Quaker ways. I'm rather fascinated with the religious details, and love learning more about the faith. As well as a murder to solve and the continuation of Rose's midwife practice, we are also privy to how her relationship with her betrothed, David, is progressing and it all adds up to a very exciting and interesting read! A fine addition to the Quaker Midwife Series, and I do hope there are more to come; I feel as if I know Rose, her family and friends rather well now and would like to extend my acquaintance! I also follow this author's writing as Maddie Day, and can highly recommend all her novels. This is a fabulous five star read!

  • Well written

    This book is well written, but it just wasn't for me. I know this is fiction but some things was just not believable. I just can't believe how the police acted. Please don't let my review stop you from trying this book, you might love it. Thank you Beyond the Page Publishing via NetGalley for theARC copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
