Review
Oregon nurse midwife Lexie Jaeger, who was adopted at birth, yearns to know her biological family. When her aunt Melia, a midwife in Lancaster County, PA, is charged with manslaughter in the death of an Amish woman and her baby, Lexie travels to help her. There, she meets her birth grandmother and begins to depend not on herself but on God. VERDICT This series debut by Clark (Secrets of Harmony Grove ) and Gould (Beyond the Blue ) is a well-written, intriguing story with fully developed characters and steady pacing. It should please both CF fans who enjoy emotional reads and nongenre readers who loved Jodi Picoult's Plain Truth . --Nanci Milone Hill (Reviewed February 15, 2011) (Library Journal, vol 136, issue 3, p94)
