The Mountain Midwife

The Mountain Midwife builds on the stories from Laurie Alice Eakes, The Midwives Series, only this latest book is written in a current day setting.  When her doorbell begins ringing in the middle of the night, Ashley Tolliver has no idea what to expect.  Ashley is the midwife for her small Appalachian community; however, she has never seen this couple, standing on her doorstep, before.  Now, Ashley must jump into action, as this young girl is about to give birth!

At about the same time several states away,  Hunter McDermott learns that the mother who raised him is actually not his birth-mother.  Suddenly Hunter does not know where he belongs!  He begins trying to track down information about his birth mother in the small mountain town where he was born.  Hunter and Ashley's paths collide when he learns that her grandmother was the midwife who delivered him all those years ago.  As Ashley begins to help Hunter discover more details about his background, she also begins to learn more about the strangers who showed up on her doorstep and then suddenly disappeared.   As both of these mysteries are slowly being solved, the feelings that seem to be developing between Hunter and Ashley may threaten her plans to move forward with her dream of becoming a doctor!

Hang on tight through this fast moving tale as some very interesting truths come to light by the end of this story!
