This book was an excellen story!
I thought that I would enjoy this book since I am slightly into midwifery, but I found it more of a dramatic/sexual book. Instead of this book being a fictional book about the life of a midwife, I found it to be a cheap,gross book. Do not be fooled as I was and waste your credits.
Of course, if you like that kind of book than this is the book for you.
The Writing, I found, wasn't very good either.
I almost didn't list this book-it is one you will want to read and reread. Part thriller, part drama, and the complex relationship of a mother and daughter. Thought provoking questions about midwivery and delivery.
This novel and its sequel The Midwife's Advice, are fascinating. They tell the tale of Hannah Sokolow, Jewish-American immigrant and midwife. A look at the world of early 20th century immigrant New York, and how many of today's controversies were shaped by the events of 100 years ago.
