review 1: 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 ... morefor 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.
review 2: Wow!! I felt like I was reading their personal journal. This is a story of abandonment, trust, love, redemption, forgiveness.... The list goes on. My heart broke for these women who had suffered much. This is a great example of how we can let our circumstances control us, instead of entrusting God to see us through our circumstances. Many times we make our own prisons, like I believe Rhoda did. But God is good, and with faith one can rise above the hardships this world offers. Amazing read. less

Very good book - I really liked this one - had to have a box of tissues! Nice story and well told.
The story had so much potential, but it just didn't ring true for me.
I liked this book but it was too sad for me.
