"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. "
