The Last MidwifeBook - 2015
From bestselling author of "Fallen Women" and "Prayers for Sale" comes a novel about a midwife who must prove her innocence in a murder case in 19th century Colorado. Gracy knows she didn't commit the crime. But her innocence isn't quite that simple, either. She knows things and that's dangerous. Invited into her neighbours' homes during their most intimate times, she can't help what she sees or hears. A woman sometimes says things in the birthing bed, when life and death seem suspended within the same moment. Gracy has always tucked those revelations away, even the confessions that have cast shadows on her heart. And she knows that her years of discretion may simply demand too high a price now - especially since she's been keeping more than a few dark secrets of her own.
