The Midwife’s Tale~Delia Parr~

The Midwife's Tale (At Home in Trinity #1)

~Synopsis~

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 was more tested. 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.

~My Review~

I have never read a book by this author so naturally I was excited to read a book by a new author to me. While reading this novel I was kinda disappointed that the heroine was older than what I was used to. I guess I am used to reading  books that have the hero and the heroine in their 20 somethings or whatever. I must admit that it took a long time to even warm up to the story.

To be honest, I really like my books to be full of dialogue between the different characters. I really don’t like when novels have more descriptions or are more wordy than anything because then I just lose interest.
That being said,this book wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. It did have a pretty good beginning but the rest of the novel just didn’t have “it” for me because I thought the book needed to be more adventurous and it didn’t have as much dialogue as I would have liked.

Overall, I wasn’t overly impressed by this novel. I may still read the rest of the series but right now I really don’t know yet.
