I am an avid reader and have never felt the need to write a review, until now. This book draws you in and you can not put it down. I am a OB nurse and did find myself facinated by the various topics in the book. Some I agreed with and some I disagreed with but was always able to feel the struggle in the Dora when she had to make the decision that was right for her patients. A Must Read for any woman. We have come a long way since 1917!

Fun book...

This was a fun book to read and it has a good story behind it. The birth house probably existed back in the early 1900's. This story was written about a little town in Nova Scotia and Ami McKay made it so realistic making the reader feel like you were living the story...

The magical remedies that Miss B and Dora used for healing, birthing, etc., made it a fun and interesting book.

    Engaging beginning...

    I was really pulled into this story in the beginning, but lost interest in about the fourth chapter. I felt like the story went all over the place after that.
