Editorial Reviews

Review

“Thomas's outstanding third mystery featuring midwife Bridget Hodgson offers a powerful portrayal of collective madness. . . . How [Bridget] handles tough moral choices helps make this entry the best to date.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Thomas's follow-up to The Harlot's Tale does not disappoint. With authentic historical details and fascinating characters, this book will draw readers deep into the elaborate world of 17th-century England, midwives, and witch hunts.” ―Library Journal (starred review)

“Sam Thomas has created one of the most fascinating detectives in contemporary mystery fiction--a crime-solving, wealthy, widowed midwife in embattled 17th-century York, England. . . . Bridget is as fascinating, fun and fierce as ever.” ―Cleveland Plain Dealer on The Harlot's Tale

“Besides making his heroine a plausible sleuth, Thomas conveys the challenges of midwifery without clumsy exposition.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Harlot's Tale

“As pleasurable as his mystery is, the true thrill here is Thomas's lively portrait of 1644 York and his unique heroine.” ―Cleveland Plain Dealer on The Midwife's Tale

“A briskly plotted historical mystery starring a pair of brave, tenacious, intelligent women who take no prisoners and make no apologies.” ―Lyndsay Faye, author of Gods of Gotham

“Thomas is a historian by profession and it shows in the wealth of detail with which he recreates the city of York amid the turmoil of the English civil war.” ―Rhys Bowen, author of the bestselling Royal Spyness series

“A heart-stopping page-turner coupled with a gritty and realistic portrayal of two strong and contrasting woman characters vividly depicted against the backdrop of the besieged city of York.” ―Cora Harrison, author of I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend

“The gripping story, fascinating characters, and intriguing era make Thomas's debut mystery a reader's delight.” ―Priscilla Royal, author of The Killing Season

“Thomas's fiction debut is packed with fascinating information about a midwife's skills and life during the English civil war. The ingenious, fast-paced mystery is a bonus.” ―Kirkus Reviews on The Midwife's Tale

“Everything rings true in historian Thomas's superb first mystery. . . Authentic details of life in 17th-century York complement the whodunit's intelligently concealed clues.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred) on The Midwife's Tale
