Publisher's Description

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.

    The Midwifes Tale by Delia Parr is the start to the series At Home in Trinity, and is about Widow Martha Cade whos profession is a midwife. I found all the details of midwifery very interesting: for instance that the husbands stayed with their wives and held them on a birthing stool, how midwives usually ran in the family, and all the other details of how a midwife assisted deliveries. While all of the history was fascinating, I also enjoyed the Widow Cade herself. She had been widowed for 10 years with two children and lived with her brother and sister-in-law who ran a tavern. She was also a very brave and strong woman.

    In this character driven story we watch how Martha relies on God and even when she receives devastating news, she does not shirk her responsibilities and does not let those who depend on her down. We have a whole cast of secondary characters that move the story forward and we have hints of a romance that has been sparked again even after so many years have passed. In this first book of the series, Martha has to now deal with a young new doctor who considers her ways archaic, a new academy of orphan boys, and a whole town dealing with a mystery of robberies. I have always enjoyed author Delia Parrs stories and I look forward to continuing this series. I received a copy of this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.

    The Midwife's Tale is an entertaining book. It is the first book in the At Home in Trinity series. It takes place in rural Pennsylvania in the 1830's. The characters are realistic and informative. The setting is descriptive. The story line keeps your attention. The book includes scandals, romance, lost children and faith. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    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.

    The Midwifes Tale by Delia Parr is the first book in the series At Home in Trinity. I had not read any of this authors books before, but I really enjoyed this novel. The plot, characters, and small town setting are very well constructed. The main character, Martha Cade, is an admirable and likeable female character. She is a widow with two grown children, a son and a daughter, and she is descended from a long line of midwives. Her family has served the people of Trinity, Pennsylvania, for generations, and their expertise and knowledge of herbal medicines have been trusted and depended upon.

    Martha Cade is a woman whose faith is tested. While Martha is away from home, her only daughter runs off with a theater troupe, and Martha is unable to track her down. Not only does she have to rely on God in this situation, but the towns beloved doctor with whom Martha shared a good working relationship had died during her absence and a young, university-trained doctor has replaced him. Martha soon learns that he has little respect for her type of work. The author has related a wonderful story about Marthas journey in faith and trust.

    I recommend this story set in the 1830s. It is an entertaining and uplifting story. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
