    This was like drinking a good cup of cocoa and listening to granny tell you about your family. History, suspence and romance and a diary. Sweet!

    Heartwarming novella collection

    "The Midwife's Legacy" by Rhonda Gibson, Pamela Griffin, Jane Kirkpatrick and Trish Perry is four novellas in one wonderful book. Midwifery is not an occupation I would want to make a career, though I have used the services of several and loved every minute of their devotion to me, their patient.

    I wanted to read this book because of that devotion. Each novella tells the story of one midwife as she struggles with difficulties, stress, and unreasonable expectations placed on women of her time period. Each author, in my opinion, portrayed their lives in an accurate manner--including the loss of life, which was sadly a common occurrence before modern medicine.

    The journal allows these women to spell out their fears and victories as they live their lives.

    I would highly recommend "The Midwife's Legacy" to all my readers, young and old alike.

    ***I received this book free for purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.***

    This review was written for The Midwife's Legacy (Oregon).
    A lovely collection of novellas, with a midwife theme.

    This collection as the cover and title implies is about midwives in the west, mid-1800's. Each story is a about a strong woman, with a certain grit about her, and a will to persevere.

    Novellas are fun because you can pick them up, and read 'em in one sitting, and this set is no different. I really enjoyed how this set used snippets of a journal so that we could get a peek into what was going on in the main character's head.

    As with other novellas, I wished that the stories had been longer, and that some of the characters had been fleshed out. I really liked the first story because it was different in that the heroine was a little older than most. Yet she got another chance at love with a sweet man.

    I also liked getting a peek into what it might have been like for midwives of that time period. Well researched!

    Overall, if you are a fan of novellas you will like this collection. I will be honest and say that I am not the hugest novella reader, but that they are very nice every one and a while :)

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

    This review was written for The Midwife's Legacy (Oregon).
    Another great book in the Romancing America series. We start in the 1800's and work our way to present day. The ladies in each story are midwifes and a special journal which is handed down to the next generation of midwifes is also a part of each story.

    What I liked: This was a good book. I really liked how the stories where told. I found the subject of midwifery quite interesting. The romance was also good and left me wishing for more stories!

    What I did not like: In the 2nd story about Polly I wish there had been a little more development when it came to her issues with her father abandoning her when she was a baby. Also in the last two stories I had a little trouble figuring how how the characters in the story before related to the current character.

    Over all this was a great book and I really enjoyed it! I felt each of the stories where good in there own right and how they all fit together with the journal was cool. I definitely recommend this book and the series as well.

    This review was written for The Midwife's Legacy (Oregon).
    This is a book with four stories. They all are connected by a journal and all the stories center on being a midwife. I liked how the stories are set in a different time period yet they are all linked in some way. I thought each story was well written and could stand on its own.

    One story, called A Mothers Cry, is about Adele Marley. She is a widow who keeps the baby of a mother who died during childbirth. I liked the town in Wisconsin that this was set in; it really made the story interesting.

    The Midwife's Apprentice is about Polly who decides to be the midwife on a wagon train that heads west. I liked the interaction of the main characters in this story. The connection between the minister with Polly is written well.

    Birth of A Dream is written by Pamela Griffin and the main character is Christiana. Will her wanting to work ruin any chance of a romance and becoming a bride? The decision she makes to work will impact the rest of her life.

    Labor of Love is about Kendra. In this story the main character is also a midwife and she decides she wants to have a place for all local midwives to work from. Will her plans work out or will they all fall apart.

    I enjoyed all the stories but found Labor of Love to be my favorite. I gave this book 5/5 stars because each story is worth reading!

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
