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, finds it impossible to let this secret rest. 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. Will these women reveal their secrets and deal with the inevitable consequences? Or are some secrets best kept hidden?

2.5 stars. I chose this book at the library entirely based on a cover blurb by liane moriarty. I have no particular interest in midwifery, but this was a quick and pleasant read.

This book really warms your heart and reminds you about the importance of family! I read it in one day, it was that easy to read. The book has an excellent ending and is perfect for anyone needing a book to take them away from life. Once the book has ended, the reader re-enters their world with more engagement and passion for life than before.

It was somewhat slow for the first two/thirds but then really picked up on interest. Great ending !!!
