The Midwife: Book Review

I have been reading so many good books lately. So hopefully this is another one you can add to your summer reading list!

Since the day Rhoda Mummau was baptized into the Old Order Mennonite Church and became the head midwife of Hopen Haus, she’s been torn between the needs of the unwed mothers under her care and her desire to conceal the secrets of her past. Contact with the outside world could provide medical advantages, but remaining secluded in the community gives her the anonymity she craves.

Graduate student Beth Winslow is on a path she never would have chosen. Heartbroken after surrendering a baby to adoption, she devotes herself to her studies until she becomes pregnant again, this time as a surrogate. But when early tests indicate possible abnormalities, Beth is unprepared for the parents’ decision to end the pregnancy—and for the fierce love she feels for this unborn child. Desperate, she flees the city and seeks refuge at Hopen House.

Past and present collide when a young woman named Amelia arrives to the sweeping countryside bearing secrets of her own. As Amelia’s due date draws near, Rhoda must face her past and those she thought she had left behind in order for the healing power of love and forgiveness to set them all free.

I read Jolina's first book The Outcast last year and was captivated from the beginning on how suspenseful, page turning and satisfying the story became and ended. When I heard she had another one in the making, I couldn't wait to read it. 

This book is encouraging, page turning and redemption is found in this beautiful story just like the last one. Jolina is an amazing storyteller and can paint the pictures for you so beautifully and unique that you are soaking it all in. 

I couldn't put this one down either and I bet you won't be able to either!

You can buy it now on Amazon or your local book store. 

 Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book and this review and my words are my own.
