"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Secrets of Midwives


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


The Secrets of Midwives
By Sally Hepworth

Publication Date: February 10

From Amazon:

THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES tells the story of three generations of women devoted to delivering new life into the world—and the secrets they keep that threaten to change their own lives forever.  Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy—including the identity of the baby’s father— hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible.  Her mother, Grace, finds it impossible to let this secret rest.  For Floss, Neva’s grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva’s situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter’s—a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all. Will these women reveal their secrets and deal with the inevitable consequences? Or are some secrets best kept hidden?

This book reminds me of Snowflower and The Secret Fan. In that book, it takes place in China and woman have this secret language for communicating to each other that the men don't know. This book sounds really interesting. My pick for the week is here:

Thanks for hosting! I haven't done this in a while.

Laura said...

Sounds interesting. My husband and I were just talking about this sort of thing last night. If a child was adopted, for example from another family member, should it be kept secret forever or eventually revealed?
Thanks for sharing it.
