Delia Parr is the author of sixteen historical and inspirational historical romance novels, including Hearts Awakening, Love's First Bloom, and Hidden Affections. The mother of three grown children, she was a long-time high school teacher in southern New Jersey before retiring to Florida.


Martha Cade comes from a long line of midwives who have served the families of Trinity, Pennsylvania, for generations. A widow with two grown children, she's hopeful that her daughter will follow in her footsteps, but when Victoria runs off, Martha's world is shattered.

Worse, a new doctor has arrived in town, threatening her job, and she can't remember a time when her faith has been tested more. Still determined to do the work she knows God intended for her, Martha is unprepared for all that waits ahead. Whether it's trying to stop a town scandal, mending broken relationships, or feeling the first whispers of an unexpected romance, she faces every trial and every opportunity with hope and faith.

Martha Cade....a woman who is a widow, and one chasing after a daughter who has run off.  Yet she still has the time and the heart to continue being a mid-wife, coming from a line of midwife's it's in her blood.  But yet, times are changing, Dr.'s are becoming a threat to her practice....which leaves a bit of drama for reading!

This is a fast moving book, not just a book about women having babies...plenty of interesting moments to keep your attention, and despite the fact that Martha'a livelihood revolves around babies, she is very much a strong, spirited woman.

A fun read.
