Call The Midwife
This book takes place in the 1950s in London's East End slums. I really enjoyed reading the experiences of midwife Jenny. The descriptions of the awful conditions that women endured back then made me appreciate the place and time I live in! I only wish the book contained more actual labor/delivery stories. Overall an entertaining read!
This was a great little mystery that was very easy to read. Right from the beginning you know who the killer is. The question is, will they get caught? And who else will get hurt along the way? If you like simple mysteries you will love this one.
The Amish Midwife's Courtship
Okay, so I am typically not a science-fiction kind of girl. I just don't like reading about things that could never happen. But when my friend recommended this book and I read the description, I was intrigued. The main character goes on a NASA expedition to Mars and ends up being stranded on the planet all alone. The entire book details how he keeps himself alive and attempts to get back to Earth. I did find myself skimming over some of the scientific mumbo-jumbo because that' just not my thing....but overall it was a really fun story to read.
This was an entertaining read that I read pretty quickly. What I didn't love about this book was the topic. The book centered around infidelity and illness.....two things I don't generally love to read about. I have read another Hilderbrand book, The Rumor, and that one also addressed infidelity. Maybe that's a theme among her books?
What good books have you read lately? I need new recommendations!
