The Midwife's Tale - Delia Parr

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.
