This is an educational read about midwives and courage. A poor young girl is found in a dung heap and taken in by a midwife. She does not remember who she is or where she came from. The midwife takes her on as an apprentice. The girl believes that she is no one and has no worth. As this short novel proceeds she learns a great deal about herself and how important it is to try and try again. Do not let failure defeat you. The author discusses midwifery in her notes at the end of the book. Very nice children's read.
