"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.***

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.

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
