Overview


One Journal Unites Four Generations

 

An aged journal links the lives of four spirited women who battle outside elements, opposition, and all odds to aid new life in the world. Will the fight to find true love be just as hard?

 

Midwife and widow Adele Marley is content with an adopted daughter, a Wisconsin farm, and her role in the community. Is there room in her life for smitten banker Jerome Jensen, a man used to getting what he wants?

 

On the wagon-train trail to Oregon, Polly Schultz finds confidence, comfort, and guidance in her own skills by reading her mother’s journal. But can she overcome her rising temper and fear of abandonment long enough to establish a future with minister Gordon Baker?

 

Thanks to the wise words found in her ancestors’ journal, Christiana is secure in her role of midwife. But how will she convince Noah Cafferty, a journalist who decries women working outside the home, that she is capable of being both a wife and a midwife?

 

Kendra Silverstone’s confidence is shaken when a client loses a newborn. Will carpenter Steven Nichols and the discovery of a long-lost journal be enough to convince her of God’s will for her life?

 

How will God work to make the dreams of these courageous women come true?

    heartwarming novella collection

    "The Midwife's Legacy" by Rhonda Gibson, Pamela Griffin, Jane Kirkpatrick and Trish Perry is four novellas in one wonderful book. Midwifery is not an occupation I would want to make a career, though I have used the services of several and loved every minute of their devotion to me, their patient.

    I wanted to read this book because of that devotion. Each novella tells the story of one midwife as she struggles with difficulties, stress, and unreasonable expectations placed on women of her time period. Each author, in my opinion, portrayed their lives in an accurate manner--including the loss of life, which was sadly a common occurrence before modern medicine.

    The journal allows these women to spell out their fears and victories as they live their lives.

    I would highly recommend "The Midwife's Legacy" to all my readers, young and old alike.

    ***I received this book free for purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.***

    Well put together!

    Another great book in the Romancing America series. We start in the 1800’s and work our way to present day. The ladies in each story are midwifes and a special journal which is handed down to the next generation of midwifes is also a part of each story.

    What I liked: This was a good book. I really liked how the stories where told. I found the subject of midwifery quite interesting. The romance was also good and left me wishing for more stories!

    What I did not like: In the 2nd story about Polly I wish there had been a little more development when it came to her issues with her father abandoning her when she was a baby. Also in the last two stories I had a little trouble figuring how how the characters in the story before related to the current character.

    Over all this was a great book and I really enjoyed it! I felt each of the stories where good in there own right and how they all fit together with the journal was cool. I definitely recommend this book and the series as well.

    Sweet

    This is the second of the "Romancing America" christian historical fiction books I have read, and like the first, we follow 4 generatuons of the same family, this one midwives.

    We see how welcomed and needed they were as the USA was expanding, and how the role of midwifery has ebbed and flowed with the role of women.

    These four stories, connected yet separate are woven together with faith in God as a strong part of the fabric
