The Midwife’s Dilemma (At Home in Trinity #3) By Delia Parr
This book is the 3rd in a series about a midwife in a town called Trinity. It takes place in the early 1800s. Martha Cade is the midwife in question, and she is a widow with a grown son and daughter. She is following in the footsteps of her grandmother who was also a midwife. She is also keeping company with Thomas Dillon, a local businessman who was her childhood sweetheart. This books ties up some loose ends from the previous books and details a few midwifing situations, but mostly deals with Martha’s indecision on if and when to marry Thomas. I found it quite tedious and it was difficult to understand her line of reasoning in all these meandering indecisions. While I enjoyed reading it, I would have enjoyed it more without all the soul searching and silly excuses. Probably Thomas would have as well.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a fair and honest review.
