The Midwife's Dilemma

The Midwife's Dilemma
At Home in Trinity Book 3
Delia Parr
 Martha is a midwife in a small town called Trinity. She's being pulled into so many directions. Her daughter is getting older and has no interest in taking over her midwifery practice, so Martha must find someone who can take over for her. Because Martha wants to marry Thomas. He's proposed, but Martha doesn't feel comfortable leaving her mothers without anyone to take her place. A woman hating horse, a wild little boy, an unexpected romance, and new friends are just a few of the things Martha encounters as she tries to transition through the changes.

I hadn't previously read anything by this author. So it was nice to get a chance to try out one of her books. Even though this is book 3 I felt like it worked well as a stand-alone. There were a few things that hinted there might be more to the story, but it didn't detract from the current book. It just made me want to go back and read the first two. The characters were fun and distinguishable. The plot was character driven, but the author did a great job of creating a little drama that helped tell the story. The messages of faith, patience, and love were woven expertly throughout the story, giving it depth and richness. The author did a great job of dealing with the emotions of the characters and making them authentic and relevant. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and can't wait to read more by this author.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
