Publisher's Description

An Amish midwife hopes to earn her community's trust and bring the joy of new life to Pleasant Valley in the third novel in this heartfelt series.

After years in a disappointing childless marriage, and now widowed at only twenty-six, Amish midwife Sarah Mast moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. But unpleasant surprises beset Sarah when she joins her aging aunt’s dwindling midwife practice.  Signs of her aunt’s decline suggest that she may no longer be capable of the rigorous demands of her work. With Sarah’s last dollar now invested in the birthing center, can she help her aunt face the truth and run the center alone?

Aaron Miller, Sarah’s neighbor, counts himself among the skeptics until he witnesses the dedication and love she has for her patients. But when an English doctor files a complaint against Sarah, Aaron’s misgivings resurface—just as his own sister faces a birthing crisis.

In the midst of such tribulations, Sarah prays for the strength to defend her practice, care for her patients, and win the hearts of the community she has grown to love.

Author Bio

A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania and her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots led Marta Perry to write about the Plain People who add to the rich heritage of her home state. She is the author of more than fifty inspirational romance novels, including the Pleasant Valley series and the Keepers of the Promise trilogy. She lives with her husband in a century-old farmhouse.

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
