  • Madeline (Florida)
    An Enjoyable Read
    This is a good, solid women's fiction novel, full of heart and warmth and strong characters, who are struggling with secrets that may forever change who they are and the relationships they hold dear.
  • Zonetta G. (Winter Springs, FL)
    Light Read
    This book, while entertaining, reads like a YA chick lit. The main characters were not always believable and needed more depth. The premise of the story was a good one and the information on midwifery was enlightening. This would probably be a good beach read.
  • Mary H. (Phoenix, AZ)
    The Choices of Women
    This read could lend to some discussion about pregnancy, expectations, love, family and or personal choices. For me, the story was too light, as if a 'made for TV movie was just around the corner'. It told a good story, however, the characters did not interest me much. I thought that the multiple generational aspect of the intertwining lives would lead to more in-depth story lines, but the author just skimmed the surface.
  • Pamela F. (Sun City West, AZ)
    The Secret of Midwives
    This is a very light and breezy read from Sally Hepworth. I liked the book for what it is, light chick lit. The story held my attention and I finished the book within 2 days. I am not sure if I would have continued the book had I not committed to read it for Bookbrowse. All three women had their secrets but they were pretty easy to predict. Still if you are looking for a light novel to escape into, this might be for you.
  • Virginia P. (Tallahassee, FL)
    The Secrets of Midwives
    The Secrets of Midwives by Sally Hepworth is a quick read which held my interest to a point. I wished for more depth in the characters as well as for more depth in the practice of midwifery. This is not a memorable book, only one that provides some entertainment for a short time. This book would probably appeal to young adult women, but as a senior, I found the cavalier attitude toward the paternity of one character's baby somewhat disappointing. The outstanding PBS series, "Call The Midwife" comes to mind in making a comparison and this book fails to measure up to that story.
