The Mountain Midwife – Laurie Alice Eakes
The Mountain Midwife was a fun book with several twists and turns. My parents were both from Southeastern Kentucky so I know the topography of this story well. I understand the twists and turns, meeting cars on narrow roads, and the ‘hillbilly’ accent.
Following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, Ashley is a midwife. She sees being only a midwife as somewhat of a shortcoming. She has put off medical school before, and plans to attend as soon as she can find someone to take over her practice.
Hunter is a ‘northerner’ from upstate Virginia. He has had the best of everything in his life from prep school to expensive SUVs. He learns something about his life and heads to the mountains to see if it is true.
Obviously, he enlists Ashley’s help and together they go about trying to solve this problem. I think you will be somewhat surprised on the road it takes to solve the problem. There are twists and turns just like the mountain roads.
I hope there is a second book because I would really like to know what happens with Heather.
I enjoyed reading this book.
