    I absolutely LOVE Martha Cade!

    She is one of the most well developed characters that I have ever met. The depth of her faith in God is incredible. She looks at everything that comes her way as being a gift from God. That includes the hard circumstances and difficulties that she has to face. She finds some of them easier to accept than others though. Her focus, especially with the problems, is to figure out why God sent that gift to her. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her journey as she sought God with each situation. Martha’s outlook on life and everything that comes her way was quite a challenge for me to trust God more myself with everything that happens in my life. I found myself searching my own heart to see how I feel I would handle a similar situation. The descriptions of how childbirth was handled and the job that the midwife and her helpers did were wonderfully detailed and informative. It only brought to my mind again all the changes that have taken place in medical care over the years. I received a free copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Absolutely wonderful

    The Midwife’s Tale is the first book in Delia Parr’s At Home in Trinity series, and is the first book I have ever read by her. I have to say, I love, love, loved this book! Delia is one author I am so glad I took a chance on! Since I had never read any of her books, I wasn’t sure if this novel would be good or not (unfortunately I’ve taken a few chances on books this year that have turned out to be not so great), but I heard wonderful things about it, so I thought I would give it a try, and I’m so glad I did! Delia really did an amazing job of weaving together this tale of love and loss, triumph and heartache that captivated me from the first page to the last. At first, I was a little worried that it would be difficult for me to really relate to Martha Cade, since she is a mother of two pretty-much-grown children and I am not near old enough to be the parent of a preteen, much less grown children. However, it didn’t take me very long at all to feel as if Martha and I were old friends, and I really enjoyed getting to journey on with her through her struggle of having her daughter run away, her midwifery practice be in jeopardy because of a new doctor in town, and her returning feelings for her old flame. She turned out to be much easier to relate to than I thought she would, and I am already eagerly anticipating reading the next two books in the series. Although I have to say, Martha’s story was far from being resolved by the end of this novel, so it’s kind of a given that I would be ready to read the next two as well. I really cannot find the words to say how much I truly loved this book. It was so full of all the things that make a novel wonderful, such as a blossoming romance—even though it may have been more like a rekindling of an old flame—a little bit of mystery, and a lot of drama, and I just found it so completely enjoyable. I feel like I cannot accurately describe what I really loved about this book without spoiling it, so I will just leave it at that, but know that I don’t hesitate even the slightest bit to give it all five bookshelves, and I know that I will be reading the rest of the series as soon as it comes out. I highly recommend this book to pretty much anyone, but then, I recommend everything that manages to make it on my all-time favorites list (honestly though, it isn’t that difficult for books to get on that list, considering My Absolute Favorites list on Goodreads has over 130 books on it). All that is to say, The Midwife’s Tale is an amazing book, and I highly recommend that you read it. As soon as possible. Because you’re going to love it.

    Sweet story

    Having delivered a baby uxing a mideifew 35 years ago, I was anxious to read, although fiction, a story zbout a midwife in a historical setting. It was so much more. Faith, family, friendship and even a bit of romance all with believable characters.

    A Midwife Tale

    This book is an interesting tale of the age old practice of midwifery as well as a story of faith that is tried and tested at so many levels. I especially liked discovering the role of the midwife in the lives of the early settlements and how the advances of the medical doctors affected their practice. But it's the story of how a person faith that has seen so many trials can be tested and forced to grow or flounder that really sets this story in the category of a worthwhile read.
