New Giveaway! Now I'm giving away The Midwife's Legacy (includes a novella by Trish Perry)

About the book:

Peek into an aged journal that links the adventurous lives of four courageous midwives. Wisconsin farmer, widow, mother, and midwife Adele Marley is too busy for a smitten, unwavering banker. To survive in love and life, Polly Schultz must rise above her fears on the Oregon Trail. Christiana is in a battle to prove to one man that she can be both a wife and a midwife. Her confidence shaken, Kendra Silverstone needs confirmation of God’s hand in her life and love. How will God work to give these women the direction they need?

My thoughts:

I finished the first story and so far I like it. The first one was written by Jane Kirkpatrick. It looks like the stories span four generations. Can't wait to read the next one!

Now for the question.... If you lived in the 1800s and were single, would being a midwife interest you? Or do you think it would be too painful if you weren't married and may not have children of your own? I will pick a winner next Sunday using the Randomizer program. Best wishes to you all.

I would not have been a midwife. I am too squeemish at the sight of blood. I don't know what I would have been back then if I was unmarried. I do know that it would not have been anything to do with medical.
Thanks for the chance to win.

I really don't think I could have handled being a midwife because I would never have been able to forgive myself if I lost a child or mother which happened pretty often. I would love to read this story, thanks so much for the giveaway.

I dont think I would have been a midwife... Not just because of the not having your own family or children... just not my thing.

I would have been a seamstress or orphanage worker or something I think.

Ack... I know I posted, but I don't see it.

I don't think I would have been a midwife. Not just because of the pain of being single and not having my own kids. I think I would have been a seamstress or schoolteacher or something.

I think it would have been hard to be a single midwife - for me, anyway. Interesting. Sounds like an interesting book for sure!

I might have been since I became a nurse. I'm sure it would have intrigued me.

Having used the services of a midwife in several births, I am thankful for them, but I would not want to be one, now or in the 1800's.

I don't think I could have been a midwife, but caring for the babies after they were born - that would be great!

I think I would be too nervous to be of much help in delivering a baby!

I do not think I could have been a midwife. I would have felt too much responsibilty on my shoulders to see that Mom and baby were safe. I also would really want kids of my own.
