It's not about breeding babies, like you might think... a midwife, an outcast doctor and the small town that surrounds their story, read it and fall into the small town "every one knows every one story," and then be surprised by how it all turns out.

I loved all the twists and turns of this book. First Karen Harper book I've read but won't be the last.

Interesting book, original idea. I do have to say that I have lived my whole life in Kentucky and have never heard people talk in the manner that Ms Harper writes their accents.

Good read.
A midwife suspects an illegal adoption ring has infiltrated her small Appalachian community and must turn for help to the town doctor--a man who strongly disagrees with her ideas of medicine.

Emma Weston, midwife extraordinare, and Griff Cusak, the town's new doctor, join forces to find out who's stealing newborn babies from the women of Shelter, Kentucky. As the tension heats up, Amy Marcs goes into high gear with Appalachian accents and lots of enthusiasm. Harper has filled this romp through the backwoods with romance, kidnapping and suspense, all ably portrayed by Marcs. Interestingly, only Emma Weston has no accent, despite being born and bred in the back hills of Kentucky. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2001
