Product Description

Since the day Rhoda Mummau was baptized into the Old Order Mennonite Church and became the head midwife of Hopen Haus, she's been torn between the needs of the unwed mothers under her care and her desire to conceal the secrets of her past. Contact with the outside world could provide medical advantages, but remaining secluded in the community gives her the anonymity she craves.

Publisher's Description

Since the day Rhoda Mummau was baptized into the Old Order Mennonite Church and became the head midwife of Hopen Haus, she’s been torn between the needs of the unwed mothers under her care and her desire to conceal the secrets of her past. Contact with the outside world could provide medical advantages, but remaining secluded in the community gives her the anonymity she craves.

Graduate student Beth Winslow is on a path she never would have chosen. Heartbroken after surrendering a baby to adoption, she devotes herself to her studies until she becomes pregnant again, this time as a surrogate. But when early tests indicate possible abnormalities, Beth is unprepared for the parents’ decision to end the pregnancy—and for the fierce love she feels for this unborn child. Desperate, she flees the city and seeks refuge at Hopen House.

Past and present collide when a young woman named Amelia arrives to the sweeping countryside bearing secrets of her own. As Amelia’s due date draws near, Rhoda must face her past and those she thought she had left behind in order for the healing power of love and forgiveness to set them all free.

    As in her first novel, The Outcast, the author is able to draw in the heart of the reader while delving into the story. Sometimes when I look at the stack of books I am blessed with reading, the choice of my next book can be really hard when faced with many wonderful books or unknown authors I want to discover. As is my practice, I wait to see which one the Lord would have me read and then share with you.

    I loved Jolinas first novel and when I could, I obtained The Midwife earlier this year. What I knew to expect would be a wonderful tale, but what I didnt know was how I would be impacted by the book. While I have never been a surrogate mother, I have been blessed by having two sons with my husband of over 26 years. Just being a woman would be enough to read this novel, allowing it to touch your heart and hope for the best outcome for the characters.

    While I cannot tell you how it ends because I dont want to ruin it for you, what I can say is that it will truly cause your eyes to mist. It will speak to your heart when you read the authors true life experience when she was writing this novel. Both the novel and author are a testament to how the Lord can mend broken hearts in ways we cannot see and bring joy from pain. The novel is truly inspiring, enjoyable, and one to share with your friends or family.

    Dont be surprised if you find yourself talking about the The Midwife and perhaps also read The Outcast, which I also think is exceptional! The novels are stand alone books that can be read in any order, but dont miss these wonderful stories! I cannot wait to see what comes next from the pen of Jolina!

    I found The Midwife to be first confusing, then disappointing. I don't enjoy books written in 1st person, and this one had more than one character portrayed in that style. Secondly, there are a lot of flashbacks, and that makes it confusing. Also, it isn't realistic of the Old Order Mennonite culture I'm acquainted with.

    The Midwife is a truly amazing book written by a extremely talented author. After reading the first book by Jolina I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I wasn't disappointed at all. I only have good things to say about this book. I don't think I could find anything negative to say about The Midwife even if I wanted to (which I don't!). If your looking for a great read then look no further!

    This is the second book I read by Jolina Petersheim and I wasn't disappointed. The author didn't write a typical Amish romance book, she took a young lady in an unusual situation and wove her into an Amish world. Rhoda, the head midwife at Hopen Haus is forced to remember her past as Beth and the people she knew as one by one they make their way to Hopen Haus. She also has several pregnant young women that require her help that she is not able to devote all her time to dwelling on her past. Finally all the unanswered questions from the prologue are answered and the current problems are resolved allowing Hopen Haus to continue.

    This book was rather unique. I'm not a big fan of Amish/Mennonite fiction because I think too often it doesn't depict the way things really are in this culture. To me, this was very true in this book. She calls the characters Old-Order Mennonites and yet, the fact that they don't have electricity, etc. seems way more Amish than Mennonite. The OOM I know all have electricity and telephones. Also, the fact that Rhoda/Beth was immersed does not go along with typical Amish culture. Most of them would not go against their standard ways of doing things because of the whim of one person. Things like that caused me to be a little turned off by the book. The story line was okay--rather unrealistic and while Rhoda was baptized in to the church, there didn't seem to be a heart transformation, which, unfortunately can be true of a lot of people, I suppose. Overall, it confirmed to me again that I will stay away from these kinds of books.
