9780062198891: The Midwife of Hope River (P.S.)

"Call The Midwife" meets "The Help" in this debut novel featuring Patience Murphy, a midwife in the 1930s struggling against disease, poverty, prejudices - and her own haunting past - to bring new life into the world. As a midwife working in rural poverty during the Depression, Patience Murphy's only solace is her gift: the chance to escort mothers through the challenges of childbirth. Just beginning, she takes on the jobs no one else wants: those most in need-and least likely to pay. Patience is willing to do what it takes to fulfil her mentor's wishes, but starting a midwife practice means gaining trust, and Patience's secrets won't allow her to let anyone in. "The Midwife of Hope River" beats with authenticity as Patience faces seemingly insurmountable conditions: disease, poverty, and prejudices threaten at every turn. From the dangerous mines of West Virginia to the terrifying attentions of the Ku Klux Klan, Patience must strive to bring new light, and life, into an otherwise cruel world. It is suitable for fans of "Call The Midwife" and "One Born Every Minute", readers of Diane Chamberlain, Jennifer Worth and Kathryn Stockett.
