it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, best-beloved
Read in January, 2001 — I own a copy

This is a novel set in post-revolutionary Maine (then still Massachusetts). It focuses on the life of a midwife, Hannah Trevor.

I loved this book for the way Lawrence wove together different kinds of narratives, and for the two main characters.

It's very clear that Hannah's story is a retelling based on A Midwife's Tale which is a non-fiction presentation of a midwife's diary, carefully examined and analyzed.
