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.

    The Midwife is the second book I have read by the author and I found this book to be just as good as the first. In this story, Beth Winslow is a struggling graduate student who becomes a surrogate for her professor and his wife. However, when the couple finds out that their unborn daughter has defects, they want Beth to get an abortion. Instead, Beth runs away and goes to the Hopen Haus, a Mennonite home for unwed moms. There, Beth meets Rhoda who is the head midwife but Rhoda is harboring a secret. Rhoda provides the girls all the care they need except for one thing: she keeps her heart closely guarded due to past hurts she has not recovered from. Then, when two people come to Hopen Haus: a man named Looper and a hurting girl named Amelia, things seem to get harder for Rhoda. Will Beth, Rhoda, and Amelia find the healing they long for to fix their broken hearts? Who is Looper and what secrets does he share? I loved this book and could not put it down until I had read the last page. Another great story by this author.

    In the first half of The Midwife was just slow for me. With the different people in the first person had me confused. Once I finally caught on I could not stop turning the pages. So many revelations that I did not see coming.

    By the end of the book, I realized that it is a great read! So many lessons to learn. I continued on to read the Author's note and cried with her. Boy, do I know what she was talking about. Heartbreaking.

    4 1/2 stars.

    Good writing, shouldn't have been an Amish book.

    I had previously read another book by this author and even though I am not an Amish fiction fan, I enjoyed her previous book and decided to give this one a try based on it's title alone.

    I found the storyline fascinating, with the line of being a surrogate in the time frame. What I didn't understand and felt was out of place was the lack of follow through on the "Amish" line up. There were too many things that just simply did not add up in the story.

    I guess if you are looking for a story that is not as run of the mill, Amish story, this is a good one to read, but for me, it felt contrived and like the author was trying to write an Amish story, when she should have stuck to a regular contemporary fiction story. It would have been way better that way!

    Graduate student Beth is a surrogate pregnant with a wealthy couple's baby. When tests show that the baby could possibly have a problem, she flees to a Mennonite community.

    This book takes place in the past (Beth) and the present (Rhoda & Amelia) and the entire story was interesting. I liked how the story was tied together at the end and the relationship between the characters explained.

    Past and present collide

    Amazing book in which the past and present collide in a powerful drama. The twists and turns in the book kept me intrigued and wondering what was going to happen. The book is told from various character viewpoints in different time periods. The story was never confusing as you switch between characters in the middle of chapters because they all are intertwined. Loved the drama and how the story all fit together.
