Book Description

As an Amish midwife, Abigail Graber loves bringing babies into the world. But when a difficult delivery takes a devastating turn, Abigail is faced with some hard choices. Despite her best efforts, the young mother dies—but the baby is saved.

When a heartless judge confines Abigail to the county jail for her mistakes, her sister Catherine comes to care for her children while Daniel works his fields. Catherine meets Daniel’s reclusive cousin, Isaiah, who’s deaf and thought to be simple minded by his community. She endeavors to teach him to communicate and discovers he possesses unexpected gifts and talents.

While Abigail searches for forgiveness, Catherine changes lives and, in return, finds love, something long elusive in her life. And Isaiah discovers God, who cares nothing about our handicaps or limitations in His sustaining love.

An inspirational tale of overcoming grief, maintaining faith, and finding hope in an ever-changing world.

My Thoughts

Abby has given her life to help other Amish women in delivering their babies and doing what means possible to save both mother and child until one day she finds herself in jail for doing everything in her power trying to save an Amish mother during childbirth, only to have her lose her live anyway. She know what she did was wrong but she also knew that what she did was the only possible thing that could have saved the mother at the time.

I can't imagine having to be in a situation like that. It's basically like having to flip a coin except for the fact that you know you should always do what you can to save someones life but then again would it be worth risking going to prison over and spending time away from your family. What a horrible decision to have to make in a split second.

I really get in to the story lines of the books I read if you couldn't already tell. This is the first book that I have read by Mary Ellis and I can guarantee that it will not be the last one. I definitely give this book 5 stars!!
