too much spiritual clap trap,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lady in the Mist (The Midwives Book #1): A Novel (Kindle Edition)
I wanted to enjoy this book, but the ever present 'spiritual' content really put me off. Why was it needed? Can we not just have a good story without this strange and constant interruption of the plot in order to push the bible and spiritual stuff down our throats?
Not for me, a shame cos I bet if it had left out all the clap trap I would have been able to stick with it and enjoy it, but it was just too much!

Can't think how to get the hero free? Let's have a prayer and it will all come right. Why can't authors who use their books to preach religion be honest about it up front?

I felt this way too, far too much going on about God for my liking. The book has a good story going on and to my mind was ruined by all the God talk. I too read past all the clap trap.

glad its not just me then Kelly, it is such a shame to spoil the story line by ramming the God babble down our throats!

I have only read one book by this author, the last one in this series, and I did find it a little too much of a 'fluffy romance'.
However I would say that this book is quite clearly listed in the category of religious/inspirational fiction, and Baker are a major Christian publisher, so I don't think its as if they are hiding anything.
I understand some people might be caught off guard or that these books aren't what they expected, but perhaps it might be useful to look these things up before buying a book to avoid disappointment because it does what is says on the proverbial tin?
