The Midwife’s Tale by Delia Parr

So wonderful. This is the first book in a new series called At Home in Trinity. Martha is a midwife from generations of midwife’s. She figured her daughter would follow in her footsteps when she runs away and joins a traveling troupe of actors. She goes off to try to find her and when she comes back to town without her daughter she is troubled to find that a new doctor is in town and trying to take her patients. She has many trials and tribulations before she might find happiness. I received this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion.  
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. Praise for “The Midwife’s Tale” “Fans of Jan Karon’s Mitford series should love Parr’s work.”–“Philadelphia Inquirer””This story has every good thing–believably flawed characters, romance, humor, and even a bit of mystery.”–Julie Klassen, bestselling author of “The Secret of Pembrooke Park” “I was reluctant to say farewell to my new friends from Trinity.”–Bestselling author Robin Lee Hatcher “This book has plot twists that are rarely predictable and yet always plausible. Compelling.”–“Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel”
