Read by Kate Burton "Astonishing" - Washington Post Book World "Superbly crafted and astonishing powerful . . . It will thrill readers who cherish their worn copies of To Kill a Mockingbird." -People. On an icy winter night in an isolated house in rural Vermont, a seasoned midwife named Sibyl Danforth takes desperate measures to save a baby's life. She performs an emergency cesarean section on a mother she believes has died of a stroke. But what if Sibyl's patient wasn't dead - and Sibyl inadvertently killed her? As Sibyl faces the antagonism of the law, the hostility of traditional doctors, and the accusations of her own conscience, Midwives engages, moves, and transfixes us as only the very best novels ever do. "A treasure . . . It is a rare pleasure when a finely written noel also grips us with sheer storytelling power." - Portland Oregonian
