The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My first to read story by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould called "The Amish Midwife" in The Women of Lancaster County books.
I really liked the mystery involved in this story, Alexandra knew she had been adopted but never learned the story behind it until she was grown and her adoptive parents were both deceased and she was told of a beautiful carved box with papers and 2 locks of hair inside upon her dads deathbed. The paperwork involved property in Switzerland. "Lexie" has always had thoughts of finding her biological parents and family so she embarks on this journey after her dads death.
Folks in Pennsylvania were not happy to see her and didn't want to answer any of her questions. You will like the folks that Lexie meets and becomes close to as she fights for every little crumb about her past. As this story unfolds there are many secrets that come to life. Marta is an Amish Midwife and comes under suspicion of wrong doing when one of her patients and child dies unexpectedly. Alexandra tells her she will help her if she is forthcoming with some answers about her past. Reluctantly she accepts her help.
This is a little different type story of the amish country but one you will be glad you picked up to read, I know I was.
