From the Back Cover
"The talented Parr has captured the realities of life in the early years of the country, writing a beautiful homage to the midwife, one of the unsung heroes in history. Martha's passion for her calling shines through the pages."--"Booklist" starred review of "The Midwife's Choice
""Fans of Jan Karon's Mitford series should love Parr's work."--"Philadelphia Inquirer" on "The Midwife's Tale
"A Season of Change Brings Uncertainty
But Also the Promise of Even Better Things to Come
Midwife Martha Cade has made up her mind. When Mayor Thomas Dillon returns in February, she is finally going to marry him. Unfortunately, that's the only decision in life in which she feels confident these days. Everything else around her feels like it's changing too fast--from her daughter's obvious affection for the town's young doctor to Martha's growing realization she'll soon need to pass on her role as midwife to someone younger. Even her beloved town of Trinity seems to be changing daily.
It is a season that will set the course for the rest of her life. Martha will need every ounce of confidence, courage, and faith she possesses to overcome the obstacles that will no doubt arise to make the changes in her life far more challenging and difficult than she can dare to imagine. "

For Martha in the final installment her body is now taking longer to gets it strength back when she is out n bad weather and helping many women or children. Martha seems to be fighting the heartache that growing older can bring as people move away from her town, her children marry, and her heart longs for a more peaceful daily life. While Martha has enjoyed the calling she senses that a new season of life for her is on the horizon but giving up her calling proves a difficult task.
There is so much happening in the story I cannot wait for you to read and discover all the nuances of the story line. The characters for me seemed very life like and I hated to see the ending of the series come to fruition. Martha has a very close walk with the Lord though during this season of transition she is truly struggling to believe God or trust Him. For me that is a real wrestling match some women may face as new seasons of life come and go.
It isn’t only the change is seasons that was very realistic but the changing landscape of friendships too. Some of them were very hard for Widow Cade and others weren’t, Martha was a true reflection on even good changes can bring about some melancholy. The ending was fantastic and a real surprise so I won’t reveal it to you other than to say it brilliant the away the author wraps up life for characters we know well in the town of Trinity. I wonder where she will take her readers next?
I’m still looking forward to finding my new favorite Christian author!
Thank you Delta Parr for this series!
