Publisher's Description

A dusty carved box containing two locks of hair and a century-old letter regarding property in Switzerland, and a burning desire to learn about her biological family lead nurse-midwife Lexie Jaeger from her home in Oregon to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. There she meets Marta Bayer, a mysterious lay-midwife who desperately needs help after an Amish client and her baby die.


Lexie steps in to assume Marta s patient load even as she continues the search for her birth family, and from her patients she learns the true meaning of the Pennsylvania Dutch word demut, which means to let be as she changes from a woman who wants to control everything to a woman who depends on God.


 


A compelling story about a search for identity and the ability to trust that God securely holds our whole life past, present, and future.

The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould tells the story of Lexie Jaeger, a Mennonite nurse-midwife, who loses the only real family she's ever known. When Lexie finds herself trying to unbury the mystery that is her past, she experiences more rejection and frustration than she thought possible. Needing an escape, and armed with new information, she sets off on a quest to find her biological parents. As one door after another closes in front of her, she debates leaving. When legal problems arise for Marta, the midwife with whom she is staying, Lexie decides to stay and help out. Along the way, she struggles with such issues as acceptance, belonging, abandonment, confusion, and rejection. Despite the pain involved, Lexie, and those around her experience the healing freedom of forgiveness in a new way. Matthew 18:21-22 is adequately exemplified in this book.

This story accurately portrays the human desire for belonging and acceptance. Clark and Gould accomplish this masterfully by magnifying this need as the focal point of the story. While not exaggerated, it is emphasized just enough to be evident. The authors also demonstrate how dissension grows and destroys if it is not dealt with properly. The climactic scene shows this above and beyond what is expected, and it springs to life as the perfect culmination to the plot.

Whereas many of the characters are in constant conflict with one another throughout the book, Clark and Gould do not overdo it, and rewarding moments are nicely balanced with setbacks and challenges. The plot is strong and enjoyable, and the characters' back-stories naturally complement the narrative. The Amish Midwife is also sound in its portrayal of godly relationships. This book, with its seamlessness, mystery, and Christian values, is a must-read. It will be enjoyed by both young adult and older women. – Rachel Vachon, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Although I found this book a bit slow to start with, by the time I finished, I was looking forward to reading the next one in the series. Lexie, an adopted Mennonite nurse/midwife, goes on a journey of self discovery after her adopted father presents her with a mysterious wooden box on his deathbed. There are so many secrets and mysteries as she searches and delves into her Amish birth family's roots, trying to discover her own roots, the reasons she was rejected, and most of all just needing to find love. There is laughter, drama, lots of suspense and mystery, and a little bit of romance. This book has just got it all and I recommend it to any lover of good Christian fiction.
