Midwife Noni Frost needs a miracle. Among the white gums of the NSW northern rivers, Rivertown Hospital’s maternity unit is under threat and will close unless a new obstetrician is hired to share the on-call load.
When Iain McCloud and his pregnant teenage daughter, Jacinta, arrive in town to await the birth of Jacinta’s baby, Noni’s stressed but that doesn’t stop the sparks from flying between her and Iain as they disagree on everything from pain relief to breastfeeding.
When Noni’s young son, Harley, goes missing, everything comes to a head. With lives at risk, Noni and Iain must draw on all their strength and work together. Can they save those closest to them?
What an unbelievably uplifting book that celebrates the strength of women and their friendships. This book really has it all, humour (thanks to Aunt Win and her weekend activities!), drama, pain, romance, excitement and multiple births! It has it all that you could want really.
Noni is such a wonderfully empowering woman who uses her skills as a midwife to remind other women of the strength that they have within themselves. If you are a mother then you will appreciate how much this is needed during labour (I wish I had a Noni at the birth of my kids). If you haven’t had children, don’t think this books won’t be for you because it really is about the strength that every woman has within her regardless of age.
The romance between Iain and Noni is divine. Iain is a picture perfect romantic interest- intelligent, attractive, flawed. Yes flawed, which makes him human and not an idealistic version of a man. You are sure to fall in love with all of the characters in this book especially Aunt Win. We all need an Aunt Win.
Overall Rating: ☕☕☕☕ 4/5 teacups!
