The Midwife’s Dilemma [Book In Review]

The Midwife’s Dilemma by Delia Parr is the third book in the At Home in Trinity series. This series needs to be read in order because of the character’s histories and relationships with each other.

As a practicing doula, I enjoy reading fiction novels about Midwives. The first two books in the series had a handful of eventful births that Martha Cade attended as the town’s midwife. For me, that was my motivation in reading the novels. In the the third book however, there was a lack of births. She attended them, but the writer did not go into detail and the reader just knew that she had been at a birth. This was very disappointing and also made the story line go very slowly. This book centers on Martha’s personal dilemma and events surrounding her children and horse. I would have enjoyed the book more if there were a few more eventful births added to the plot.
