'Once again, Eakes writes a beautiful novel rich in relationship. [...] Together they, along with the town around them, create a warm and inviting story that keeps readers engaged through the very end.' - 4 starred (RT Book Reviews)
'Eakes (Choices of the Heart) brings her historical Midwives inspirational romance series into a present-day setting, introducing Ashley, the latest in a long line of Cherrett/Tolliver midwives… Inconsistent in its demonstrations of faith, and rife with exaggerated stereotypes of Appalachian culture, the tale focuses primarily on protagonists’ heightened sense of self-discovery, more the result of extended inner reflection than the mysteries both are faced with or their budding romantic relationship.
