Let’s start off with the very best thing about all of the books in the Midwife series—the characters. I am so drawn in each and every time to all the characters in her books. From Patience Murphy to Dr. Blum, Mary Proudfoot, and Becky to Mrs. Kelly, Nora and all the young men from the CCC camp. In Patricia Harman’s latest book- The Runaway Midwife there’s Clara, yet another character that I feel I know and immediately want only the best outcome for. The author doesn’t disappoint with this book. I loved the idea of Clara reinventing herself and also of her running away to Canada. I wasn’t sure I would want to be taken away from Hope River with The Runaway Midwife, but oh was the escape on the snowmobile worth it. I think almost everyone can relate to the fact that you can never truly escape from your past. I so enjoyed The Runaway Midwife and know without a doubt this will be a book I will want to return to over and over again!
It goes without saying all of the books in this series are made so much richer by the fact the author has worked as a midwife herself. Each book rich with the details of the joys of birth, and sadness too. I’m so totally captured by the true beauty of childbirth—so richly and beautifully written by the author Patricia Harman.
