On an icy winter night of 1981 in the rustic community of
Reddington, Vermont, seasoned midwife Sibyl Danforth is forced to make a
life-or-death decision that will change her world forever. As with all of the
very best novels, Midwives provides no easy answers; rather, it consistently
engages, moves, and challenges our ways of thinking.
