Come home to friendship, family, and faith in the town of Trinity...

Martha Cade is a midwife in the town of Trinity in 1830s Pennsylvania. In a time when the traditional ways of medicine are constantly being questioned by new doctors fresh from medical school, Martha tries to balance her life’s calling with the demands of her family. Recently reunited with her estranged seventeen-year-old daughter, Martha finds herself torn between guiding her child and allowing her to be an adult. And the town of Trinity itself is fraught with secrets: as a midwife, Martha knows which families are troubled, which wives are unhappy, and which husbands have crossed the line from discipline to abuse...

As Martha struggles with the conflicts of being a mother, a midwife, and a woman, she learns the greatest lessons of all--that hope can shine even in the darkest hours, and that faith has a way of making the impossible possible.

About the Author:

Delia Parr is the author of nine novels. She lives in southern New Jersey, where she teaches high school.

From Booklist:

The second in a series about a small Pennsylvania town follows closely the formula established in A Place Called Trinity [BKL F 1 02] and picks up where it left off. It's 1831, and Martha Cade, the town's midwife, is still estranged from her runaway daughter, still flirting with the idea of being in love, and still hip-deep in the affairs of the town. Martha believes that her job as midwife is a calling from God, and allows very little to interfere with her work, and that her guidance is needed to keep things in Trinity in order. Called out early one dawn to deliver a baby, Martha suspects an abusive situation, then returns home to discover that her daughter, Victoria, has returned, albeit under the influence of June, a successful female publisher. As events unfold, Martha offers succor to many and lots of observations about faith, ending up with a new career as a women's health-care columnist, and leaving lots of unresolved elements for Parr to tackle in future installments.
