Following a major personal embarrassment that went viral on social media, Ella returns to her home town of Port Agnes in beautiful Cornwall to take up a position as a midwife at the local unit. She is soon making her rounds, getting to know the expectant mothers in the Port Agnes area, sharing in their joys and fears and becoming part of their lives at one of the most important times they will ever experience.
Not all the mums-to-be are having an easy time. With phobias and unexpected pregnancies, some of them need Ella's help more than others. Then there's Tara, whose husband seems to be the most selfish and uncaring of fathers-to-be. When Ella spots him in a compromising situation in a local pub, her opinion of him sinks even lower. But is there more to Dan than she realises?
The Cornish countryside and the rural community comes alive in this novel. A sense of place is always important to me, and I could quite picture myself on the Cornish coast, eating pasties and listening to the cry of the gulls, as I read.
There's a strong cast of supporting characters and I'm sure many of them will feature in future books in this series. There's plenty of scope for more stories, as the midwives not only go about their work, but deal with all the twists and turns in their private lives, too.
Jo Bartlett is a lovely writer, and I always know I'm guaranteed a good read when I pick up one of her books. I'm looking forward to the next instalment in this delightful new series and can't wait for my next trip to Cornwall!
And, it felt like it was set in the 1950s , albeit updated with mobile phones and internet infuencers.
It felt like an unsuccessful attempt at Call The Midwife, Cornish version. Cliched, repetitive and the heroine is nauseatingly nice, to everyone. There was no tension, the outcomes were screamingly apparent from the beginning. I am sorry I wasted time and money on this. Another author for the never again list.
But life back home in lovely Port Agnes was never going to be straightforward for Ella. When she had a brush with fame on the fated day of her wedding, she couldn’t have foretold how far-reaching its effect would be. As Ella’s life eases back on track, helped by her busy job as a midwife and all the hard work and emotion it involves, and cheered on by her mum and dad and friends, old and new, she begins to see how love could once again be a part of that life. But not everyone wishes Ella well, and it isn’t only a pregnant woman who is in danger. Jo Bartlett is known for her stylish brand of story-telling, and this book is another gem. I raced through to the end, wanting to know how all the story threads worked out. Can’t wait for the next Cornish Midwives book!
o give a tad of credibility.
Read as friendships and relationships blossom and enjoy a few hours down in Cornwall.
Looking forward to the next book in the series!
