Loved this book and will read more in the series.

disclaimer - I am very familiar with nurse-midwifery deliveries and my only regret is NOT having a home delivery as there were issues with the hospital nursery staff trying to own my child both times, including interfering with the nursing process which in the case of the second child was not fully recovered.

This is age-old conflict as the mostly male dominated obstetricians try to make women conform to their expectation of average times and conve

After reading 2 books from this series, there were well written and well thought out, I was disappointed in this book. While the writing was still top notch, I felt the relationship was forced and maybe even went too fast, there was no slow build to the attraction between the two leads, and while I like the book, it's definitely not going to one of my favorite's or anything I recommend to my friends.

This book deals with the issues of home births vs. hospital births. Amber, a nurse-mid-wife, has cousins and grandparents in the Amish community. She feels very strongly about the benefits of home births. Dr. Philip White, Dr. Harold White's grandson, is thoroughly opposed to home births and thinks the only place is the hospital...

"As a nurse-midwife in Amish country, Amber Bradley helps expectant mothers have their babies safely at home. But when Hope Springs new doctor arrives, he insists all maternity patients deliver at a hospital." Midwifery and the simple life of the Amish have always interested me so if found this inspirational romance an enjoyable read .279p

I got this as an inexpensive e-book. However I enjoyed Patricia David's The Doctor's Blessing. If you like reading about the Amish, finding love you'll like this. The doctor comes to this small town because his grandfather was injured and it will leave grandfather's town with no doctor. It is a quick read, two sessions.

I love reading Amish fiction so this book was already starting on a good foot. I can honestly say that it was a fun read. I liked the mixture of real life and Amish life together. The book teaches you about love, respect, midwifery. I really liked it. I think you'll enjoy it :).

Maggie Boyd
I thought this book was an interesting look at what it is like to practice medicine in an Amish community. Not so good a romance though
Natalie
This was good. I love the characters and plot. It is a clean read. I cannot wait to read more of the series.

I read this in one day - I just couldn't put it down. Semi-predictable but good still the same!

I was born and raised in Northcentral Kansas. I'm a farmer's daughter, but I now make my home in the city of Wichita. I'm an RN. Neonatal nursing has been the main focus of my career. What can I say?

In June of 2011 I became a widow after my husband of 36 years and 11 months died from
