This is a fairly good story but I think the title is deceptive. I assumed it would be about the daily life of a midwife and her interaction with the women. Elizabeth and her ancestors are midwife's but that's about it. There's only a couple of births she attends and the rest she just refers to them. The story is just about Elizabeth's life growing up in the mountains from age 15 to her 30's. So, the story itself is charming but if you're looking for something like Call the Midwife, you'll be disappointed.

Storytelling at its best! I just discovered a new favorite author. This story swept me up and right in the heart and soul of her characters....

This is a book to stay up all night and read, and then read it again the next day. It is one to sit on your shelf in a place of honor, one that you will recommend to all of your friends but not want to lend because you wont want to give it up. There is something so engrossing, so lovely, and so smart about THE MIDWIFE'S TALE, it was written it seems as a love letter to people who love to read. And that is maybe the highest compliment there is.

Laskas has created a miracle here--a living, breathing world of rural Appalachia and midwives, of love and loss and the strength it takes to hang onto what you value in your life. I sat up until two in the morning reading, unable to tear myself away. What can I say? I absolutely loved this book.
