And when a criminal complaint is filed against Sarah, she must pray for strength to defend her practice and win acceptance from the community she loves.

Publisher's Description

Can an Amish midwife earn her community's trust and bring the joy of new babies to Pleasant Valley?

Amish midwife Sarah Mast moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. But her aging aunt can no longer run the birthing center, leaving most of the responsibility to Sarah. Among those skeptical of Sarah's ability is neighbor Aaron Miller, who seems drawn to Sarah but pulls away when his own sister requests her services. And when a criminal complaint is filed against Sarah, she must pray for strength to defend her practice and win acceptance from the community she loves.

Author Bio

A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania and her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots led Marta Perry to write about the Plain People and their rich heritage. She lives in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, and is the author of over thirty-five inspirational novels.

Publisher's Weekly

Perry (Leah's Choice) offers another story set in the Amish country of Pleasant Valley, Pa. The widowed Sarah Mast is a midwife who moves to Pleasant Valley to join her Aunt Emma's midwife practice. Sarah invests money to expand the practice as signs of her aunt's declining health emerge. Carpenter Aaron Miller agrees reluctantly to do the work; his mother had died in childbirth 16 years earlier, attended by Emma. Just as reluctantly, he finds himself drawn to the even-tempered new midwife. The only one who isn't impressed by her is Englisch doctor Thomas Mitchell, who takes legal action against what he contends is the unlicensed practice of medicine. Perry's narrative keeps a nice pace as things develop credibly if somewhat repetitively between Aaron and Sarah; the legal challenge makes for more than merely romantic tension. Minor characters are also clearly sketched and differentiated. This is a competent addition to the booming genre. (Mar.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    Reading Sarah's Gift by Marta Perry , I was amazed at how wonderfully strong Sarah is and how courageous she appears though she is thrown into a number of situations that could send someone spiralling and away from God. As I read Sarah's Gift, I couldn't help but associate Sarah with a character from the bible -Job . Job was a godly person and Satan decided to test him and sent all this evil and bad luck upon him , things that would have turned others from God, but Job stood steadfast with the Lord and praised and worshipped him. I find that utterly amazing. To me, Sarah followed this same path as for a young woman of twenty-six- the things she had to experience were heartbreaking and tragic and at times scary as the unknown awaited her. I was trying to figure out how to write this review as I could go on about the book for ages , so I decided to play the Job angle and for all those Christians out there, how I saw Sarah like Job.

    The first tragedy in Sarah's life was the death of her husband Levi , at only twenty-six Sarah became a widow taking with this the one thing she had wanted most in the world besides her husband and God - Children . Sarah decides that in order to move on , she must start a new life so she moves to live with her Aunty Emma in Pleasant Valley. However as Sarah arrives, she sees all is not well with Emma and her plans of becoming a midwife in Emma's practice seems now like a dream rather than a reality as Emma is selling the practice due to finances and her state of health. With the help of her life savings, Sarah takes over the midwifery and all goes well until a Dr Mitchell - the new Englischer local doctor receives note of Sarah and from there it escalates into Sarah being put on trial. However, though her misfortunes are plenty, Sarah knows that God has a plan for her as Sarah is called to look after a friend during her birth and ends up saving the woman and her child. It also seems that God has thawed the heart of local Carpenter Aaron Miller , will Sarah be able to find the one thing that she will always yearn for , something that was cut short with Levi ?

    Find out all this and more in the amazing tale of Sarah's Gift by author Marta Perry ,and if Sarah's gift is anything to go by then I will be adding Marta Perry to my list of authors to read.

    This was a very good book. The book had alot of twist and turns and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. You get so caught up in the characters that you cant put the book down. All 4 books of this series is a must to buy. It shows you all about the Amish life and the struggles, trails and their heartaches they face. But through all of it its their faith thats carries them through. You need to buy all of this series.

    The book was great and very much Wanda bumstetter's style. I had read the other 2 books also and so was very anxious to read this one. Another book that once you start it you have a hard time putting it down until finished
