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.

    Guaranteed to make you cry!

    Petersheim did a great job interweaving these characters lives. Each chapter or section is labeled with the character and year, so we know the setting and whose perspective were getting. The setting varied between the 1970s and current day and between a Mennonite community and Boston.

    Ultimately, this book is encouraging. It shares many life experiences of the characters, thus teaching many life lessons. Many serious topics are discussed in Petersheims The Midwife. I would allow my 17-year-old daughter to read it if we discussed it, but I think she is going to pass. I caution that if you've ever been pregnant, the ladies' stories in this novel will rip your heart out and you will bawl!

    I have two issues with The Midwife that kept me from giving it 5 stars: I can handle one No way! coincidence in a true-to-life story, but when the 2nd one happened it annoyed me. Also, as the book was dying down, there was an added suspenseful part that wasnt necessary and kept me from getting to the goal: the end of the story.

    I liked this book even if I predicted what the end would be like long before I got there. It was about forgiveness, love, and God's grace.

    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!
