The Harem Midwife by Roberta Rich

An opulent, riveting, and suspenseful continuation of the thrilling historical novel The Midwife of Venice set in medieval Constantinople.


The Imperial Harem, Constantinople, 1578. Hannah and Isaac Levi, Venetians in exile, have overcome unfathomable obstacles to begin life anew in the Ottoman Empire. He works in the growing silk trade, and she, the best midwife in the capital, tends to the hundreds of women in Sultan Murat III’s lively and infamous harem. One night, Hannah is unexpectedly sum­moned to the extravagant palace and confronted with Leah, a Jewish peasant girl who was violently abducted. The sultan favors Leah as his next conquest and wants her to produce his heir, but if the spirited girl fails an important test, she faces a terrible fate. Taken by Leah’s tenacity, Hannah risks everything to help her. But as Hannah agonizes over her decision, an enchanting stranger arrives from afar to threaten her peaceful life with Isaac, and soon Leah too reveals a dark secret that could condemn them both.

Filled with adventure and vivid detail and peopled with memorable charac­ters, The Harem Midwife showcases Roberta Rich’s boundless talent for cap­turing readers’ imaginations.

an interesting sequel to the story that started in the midwife of Venice. .. the author has topped the memory of her controversial story. How does a Jewish midwife survive in the tumultuous world of Constantinople. The temporary freedom of Jewish culture an enterprise in the city makes it originally appealing may cause more problems then solutions. Hannah and Issac have more problems then either of them can face alone. It will test their beliefs, ideals, and relationship.

I didn't care that much about the Midwife of Venice, its prequel, but this one, from the moment I started reading, I couldn't put it down ! not a moment of boredom throughout the 320 pages, it was emotional, breath-taking, suspenseful, and happy ended! It is not necessary to read the Midwife of Venice, but I recommend you do, for a better understanding of the character's past.
