Product description

Review

"This engaging novel dives right into the grief of losing a last known family member. As Lexie steps outside of her world to find her birth family she finds herself swept into an unfamiliar stream of uncooperative characters in a totally different culture. I was driven along with her, eager to learn each new clue. The characters were authentic, interesting and their faith and hope kept me engaged and hopeful. A very satisfying read."
?Mary Richman Sankaran

"This is an engaging account of a young nurse-midwife, raised by her adoptive family in Oregon, who travels to Pennsylvania to discover the truth about her past. She ends up learning much more than she expected, both about her family and herself. Issues of identity, forgiveness, and belonging are deftly interwoven into the story of this woman's quest. The gradual unraveling of the mystery holds the reader's attention throughout. An added bonus is the respectful but candid depiction of the Mennonite and Amish cultures."
?Elizabeth Cosgriff

"Suspense and tension deepens as The Amish Midwife progresses. The characters seem so real I want to pray about their problems and cry at their struggles. I won't soon forget them.
"This first book in The Women of Lancaster County series is definitely a winner. It also contains discussion questions, which provide added depth to the reading experience. I came away with a peace like Lexie found, glad God is in control of our lives."
?Mary A. Hake, OCW president

"The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould was an excellent read, with multi-faceted, well-developed characters, and good plot pacing. Typical themes of Amish books were explored, such as secret-keeping, behavior expectations, and forgiveness. In addition, there were themes of midwifery, adoption, a bit of romance, and others that I won't mention here, since I don't want to spoil the story for readers. Especially enjoyable was the process of learning Lexie's story of her beginnings in life as she discovered pieces of the puzzle, her growing love for her newfound relatives, and the conclusion when all was revealed. It was not a book that I raced through to get done, but one that was savored to a strong and satisfying completion. I highly recommend it."
?Mary Steinbrenner, Library Lady, Cedar Mill Bible Church

"The Amish Midwife is a compelling page-turner with characters so believably drawn they took my breath away. Lexie's spiritual journey touched my heart in a way that will live on even though I've turned the last page."
?Pam Hanson, co-author with Barbara Andrews of women's inspirational fiction for Guideposts

"I highly recommend this book to all lovers of Amish fiction. This isn't your run of the mill story; it is definitely set apart by the different subject matters that are brought out within the text."
?Brandi Fitzpatrick, The Faith in Fiction Book Club, BookFun.org

"It was enjoyable spending time with Lexie in the world of the Amish and following Lexie as she works to solve the mysteries surrounding her birth. Terrific read, highly recommended!"
?Lonnie Cruse, LonnieCruse.com

"In The Amish Midwife, Mindy Clark and Leslie Gould give us ?English' a fascinating look into the Amish-Mennonite culture in its contemporary form. And to the non-adopted, they reveal the culture of adoption and search. As an adult adoptee that has been through search, I was grateful to see how tenderly, and accurately, Leslie and Mindy presented Lexie's journey to her birth-family and the strength, courage and endurance, as well as the love it required."
?Caroline F. Daniel

"We have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I like the suspense while reading. And also how the author kept me guessing all the way though the book."

"I-could-not-put-the-book-down! From the very beginning to the very end, the story kept my interest. I would recommend this book to anyone."
