A truly great read for all mothers - reminding us of the days when babies were born at home amid the love and concern of the family. Patience Murphy used to be Elizabeth Snyder - and now she's run and thinks she's escaped her past. She's become a midwife in Appalachia - near the coal mines and closer than she thought to the KKK. She has no professional training, but she's all these people have to call on. The birth stories will fill your hearts with joy. Among and between births, Patience deals with prejudice, poverty, and fear of her past, and ministers to her patients, neighbors, and friends in a multitude of ways. Oh, and did I mention the handsome veterinarian who lives on the adjacent land??
