This story was very good. I could see it playing out like a heart warming drama with just the right amount of edgy reality.
Very entertaining! Nice clean love story with many twists and turns in the main characters backgrounds, economics and demographics. Enjoyable and worth the listen.
The story was good but I didn’t feel it reached it’s full potential. The ending was abrupt and flat. There were a few places where the recording repeated itself.
I had mixed feelings about this book, and eventually the negative ones won out. Note: This book has a strong Christian perspective, so don't read it if that bothers you. It didn't bother me at all, but other things did.
On the positive side, it's well written and engaging, and I am familiar with the beautiful region where it's set. It was interesting to read about the life of a mountain midwife.
On the negative, the main character and all her friends and co-workers and even the town sheriff, are all depicted as not just attractive but drop-dead, movie star gorgeous with perfect hair, designer clothes, toned supermodel bodies and exquisitely designed homes, amazing careers etc. Meanwhile the poor mountain women are all overweight smokers with overbleached hair who look too old for their age and don't have the sense to live the way the way the midwife's friends and favorite (rich) patients do. It became really distasteful after a while so I said goodbye to this one.
decent listen, I like the story. My only issue was the narrator (I feel bad critiquing narration) BUT the voice was always high and upbeat, even with men, even during parts that called for a sadder? voice.
Every sentence ended in a question with the narrator even if it had a period, explanation mark etc. Could have been much better.
I enjoyed this book immensely. The writing and the narration were both good. I enjoyed the portrayal of the tradition of midwifery in the Appalachian Mountains, and the portrayal of the people who live there in conditions of extreme poverty. The only two negative comments I have are with regard to the incident in Europe that thrust Hunter into the spotlight. It was never fully explained. Plus, the editing of the audio version had some errors. There were at least five sections in which A sentence or two were repeated.
I adored this book about the lives of woman in the Appellation Mountains. How they relied on the Midwife for delivering their babies and also for her friendship. The story dwells into the lives of these woman and their menfolk with the plot of the story broadening wider to include more twisting of the plot as the story winds its ways to a beautiful ending.
