About

Overview

An International Bestseller

Reluctant midwife Emma Trimpany is just 17 in 1934 when she assists at the harrowing birth of the Dionne quintuplets: five tiny miracles born to French farmers in hardscrabble Northern Ontario. Emma cares for them through their perilous first days. And when the government decides to remove the babies from their francophone parents, making them wards of the king, she signs on as their nurse. Over 6,000 daily visitors come to ogle the “Quints,” delighting in their sameness, yet Emma sees each girl as unique. And as the fight over custody and revenues turns explosive, she is torn between the fishbowl of Quintland and the wider world now teetering on the brink of war.
