    good end to series

    Ms. Parr character development was on par with the story-line. Martha’s character is strong and independence with deep faith, but she is also very firm in her own personal standards. I found myself at times wanting to shake her. But she finds her way through prayer and her belief in God’s plan for her. Ms. Parr painted a picture with words of the struggle we go through with decisions and situations then through prayer and God’s guidance we reach the correct conclusions. Thomas was another strong character, independent, and firm in his faith. Through his faith, prayer, and God’s guidance, he will grow throughout the story. The secondary characters in the book were wonderful and added so much depth to the book. This is a faith-based book, but Ms. Parr does not preach or push Christian beliefs on the reader. Ms. Parr presents us as we are, with all our faults and failures, but with God’s guiding hand and forgiveness in our life. This was a good finish to the series as it resolves all the issues introduced in the series and ends the series on a high note. Author Delia Parr created a clean, solid, well written book that is suitable for anyone. Thank you Ms. Parr for this series. I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in return for an honest book review. Book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion,

    Third book in series!

    The Midwife’s Dilemma by Delia Parr is the third book in the At Home in Trinity series. Martha Cade lives in Trinity, Pennsylvania in 1831. She has been alone the last few months since Fern and Ivy Lynn left town to take care of personal business. Thomas Dillon (who wishes to marry Martha) went as their escort. Martha’s daughter, Victoria has been helping Aunt Hilda (not really a relative). Martha suffered a terrible loss when her horse, Grace died recently. Martha used Grace to get to her midwife appointments and birthing (she was also who she talked to). Martha now has to rely on other people for transportation. Thomas, Fern, and Ivy finally return home and they bring Jane Trew and her daughter, Cassie with them (new project). Jane is hiding a secret, but no one wishes to pry. Thomas now wishes for a decision from Martha. Will she or won’t she marry him? It is not an easy decision, because Martha knows she would not be able to continue her practice. Martha needed to find someone to replace her if she decides to marry Thomas. Martha also has to deal with her daughter, Victoria’s new romance. Victoria has been seeing Dr. Benjamin McMillan (without her mother’s knowledge). Now they wish to get married (and want Martha’s permission). So many decisions for Martha. Will she make the right ones? Join us in The Midwife’s Dilemma to see what is happening in Trinity and if Martha makes the right choices. The Midwife’s Dilemma was not as good as the first book in the series. This book was mostly Martha trying to decide whether or not to get married (I am not kidding). Martha goes back and forth on her decision, lamenting the loss of her horse (and not willing to accept anyone’s help on getting a new one), and upset that her daughter wants to marry her enemy (Dr. McMillan). I, personally, did not understand what Thomas saw in Martha (I kept hoping the guy would land someone more decisive and appealing). The Midwife’s Dilemma is nicely written and easy to read. The Christian theme is very prevalent throughout the book. I just felt that this book was an add-on (that was not needed). Martha has really been trying to make up her mind this whole time (through the whole series). The Midwife’s Dilemma is really not a stand-alone book. You need to read the previous books in order to understand everything that is going on in this book. I give The Midwife’s Dilemma 3 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of The Midwife’s Dilemma from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.
