The Midwife’s Tale - by Delia Parr
When I received my copy of The Midwife’s Tale, I was so excited. I loved the premise of this story. I loved the cover art. I was ready to dive in to this wonderful story.
I opened the book and from the first several pages, I thought I had found a new favorite book. However, my excitement faded quickly. It wasn’t the story. Honestly, it was me. I really do not enjoy reading books for fun that are written from a third person perspective. I love reading all the thoughts going on inside the heads of the major characters. If I had a super power – and it is a good thing I don’t – it would be mindreading. I am fascinated by what makes people tick.
I made it to my “Five Chapter Rule” in the book. AND I really do think MANY if not MOST will love this story. I loved how the women worked together to help others. I love it when people stand up for their beliefs. I just evidently have personal problems that kept me from enjoying this story.
I was given a copy of the book by Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
