“Midwives” by Chris Bohjalian
This is the engrossing tale of Sibyl Danforth, a Vermont midwife whose patient dies in childbirth during a winter storm. Readers can gather that her actions and interventions were sincere and appropriate for the situation, but the big question is: “Will the jury agree with this conclusion ?”. It’s definitely one of those stories that hooks you right from the start. Enjoy!
How many stars does the book deserve?
