The Secrets of Midwives Kindle Edition
"This is women's fiction at its finest ... a wonderfully satisfying story ... touching, tender, and meticulously researched" Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies and The Husband's Secret
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Sister and The Mother-in-Law with new novel The Younger Wife out now.
In a family of midwives, some secrets are too big to keep hidden ...
Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy - including the identity of the baby's father - hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible.
Her mother, Grace, cannot let this secret rest, even while her own life begins to crumble around her.
For Floss, Neva's grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva's situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's - a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.

Thank you Sally. You did good!
I raced through the pages, eager to uncover the secret that Floss had kept for so long. All three women had their own secrets though and as the story unfolded each secret impacted on the lives of each woman, their families and beyond. I was sorry to say goodbye to Neva, Floss and Grace when the story ended. I'll definitely be reading more by this author.
