    This was an amazing book. McKay blends historical fact with fictional characters with ease. This book, like McKay's The Virgin Cure provides important commentary on early feminism and is a must read.

    This is one of the most beautiful books that I have read. I loved Ami McKay's writing style - she is very graceful in her descriptions. I thought it was nice to read about the transitions that were taking place for material care and how the women were treated.

    The Birthing House

    Excellent read. Well written and researched, interesting and thought provoking. The reader's imagination is constantly creating images as the book easily encourages the reader to identify with the characters and environments it describes. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.

    This is a true poignant story of a young woman struggling to do what she feels is right and following her heart in spite of obstacles and opposing members of her community. I had to read this for a book report in English 1000 and it opened my eyes to what women went through when medicine was first being introduced to birthing and labor.
