“The Midwife” by Jolina Petersheim, book review
Beth is a graduate student for Dr. Thomas Fitzpatrick when he asks her to be the surrogate for he and his wife, who must have a complete hysterectomy. This is their only chance to have a child. Beth agrees, and becomes pregnant with the Fitzpatrick’s baby. But when genetic testing shows that the baby may have a problem, she flees because the genetic parents want the baby aborted. Beth goes to a Mennonite home for unwed mothers and after her daughter is born, she remains and becomes a midwife.
I really enjoyed this novel. It captured my attention and was hard to put down. It is well written and kept my interest. I cannot give more details without giving away the story, but it is a page turner.
