I think that 'Midwives' is the best book that I ever read. I am a college student, and even though I had other assignments to do, I couldn't put the book down. I was so convinced that Sybil was innocent, even when Connie took some pages out of the notebook. When I read the last page though I about cried, because I knew then that Sybil had killed Charlotte. This might exactly be a review, but I just wanted to say how wonderful Bohjalian was, that he had me doubting myself, to where now, I sometimes don't know.
