This is the second book in the Quaker Midwife series - while I had not read the first book - I was able to follow along with no problems. Meet Rose Carroll, a Quaker midwife. This book will keep you turning pages (or in my case clicking the next page button on my kindle). This book will also keep you guessing. The period and setting in this book is well researched and it was a fun journey to take. The author gives great details into the life of a midwife back in the 1880s.  I really enjoyed this book. 

I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my opinion - all opinions are my own.
