The Midwife's Dilemma

Delia Parr (pen name) is the author of seventeen historical and inspirational historical romance novels, including The Midwife's Tale, Hearts Awakening, Love's First Bloom and Hidden Affections.  The mother of three grown children, she was a longtime high school teacher in southern New Jersey before retiring to Florida's sunny west coast.  In between visits to her grandchildren in several different states, she spends her time writing and volunteering alongside other women who share a bond of sisterhood as sisters of faith.

A season of change brings uncertainty but also the promise of even better things to come.

Midwife Martha Cade has made up her mind.  When Mayor Thomas Dillon returns in February, she is finally going to marry him.  Unfortunately, that's the only decision in life in which she feels confident these days.  Everything else around her feels like it's changing too fast - from her daughter's obvious affection for the town's young doctor to Martha's growing realization she'll soon need to pass her role as midwife to someone younger.  Even her beloved town of Trinity seems to be changing daily.

It is a season that will set the course for the rest of her life.  Martha will need every ounce of confidence, courage, and faith she possesses to overcome the obstacles that will no doubt arise to make the changes in her life far more challenging and difficult than she can dare to imagine.

My Thoughts:
The Midwife's Dilemma is the third book in the At Home in Trinity series.  I have so enjoyed following the story of Martha Cade in this endearing series by Parr.  I appreciate Parr's handling of the series in that she doesn't retell the story over and over, but offers new situations for Cade to navigate in each book.  Parr touches on family dynamics between Martha and her daughter as well as Martha's personal growth.  The character development throughout the series has been exceptional.  I don't think I'm ready to leave Trinity!

*I was given a complimentary copy of the book for the purpose of giving this review.

Happy Reading Ya'll,
