Midwife Martha Cade has decided. When he returns in February, she is going to marry Mayor Thomas Dillon. That is the only decision in life in which she feels confident these days. Everything else around her feels like it’s changing too fast, from her daughter’s obvious affection for the town’s young doctor to Martha realizing she’s ready to pass on her role as midwife to someone younger. Even her beloved town of Trinity is changing.
The 1830s Pennsylvania town, having mushroomed in size and population, is becoming an important agricultural and economic center for the region, and soon a canal will connect it even more to the outside world.
It is a season that will set the course for the rest of her life. Martha will need every ounce of confidence, courage, and faith she possesses to overcome the obstacles that will make her life far more challenging and difficult than she can dare to imagine.
Heartwarming characters that love and care about each other have made this series so enjoyable to read.
I love Martha and Thomas. Their relationship has had some ups and downs along the way, but the love they have for each other is pure and sweet.
This three-part series gets better with each book.
Although this is the third and final book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone. There’s plenty of background information on the secondary characters so that the reader can quickly figure out what role they’ve played in the series.
I recommend reading the series because Trinity is a delightful town filled with delightful characters.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest opinion which I have given.
