A Quaker Midwife Mystery

Amesbury, Massachusetts, 1889. The harsh winter doesn’t stop Quaker midwife Rose Carroll from making rounds to her pregnant and postpartum mothers. When Charity Skells dies from an apparent early miscarriage, Rose wonders about symptoms that don’t match the cause of death. She learns that Charity’s husband may be involved with a young woman whose mother appears to offer prohibited medical procedures. A disgraced physician in town does the same, while Charity’s cousin seems to have his own nefarious agenda. With several suspects, Rose and Detective Kevin Donovan race to solve the case before another innocent life is lost.
