The Secrets of Midwives

Cover: 'The Secrets of Midwives'

Staff Review: "The Secrets of Midwives" by Sally Hepworth


Are you a fan of "Call the Midwives" and are looking for something similar? Or are you just interested in novels with strong female characters? This novel centers around three generations of midwives, each with a startling secret that will alter their lives and the lives of their families. When Neva, a third generation midwife learns she's pregnant, she desperately hides the identification of the father, while her grandmother harbors a shocking secret of her own. Heartwarming, moving, and thoughtful, this is a fantastic read.
