    I like these NAL Accent books They re trade paperback size and on the bottom it says Fiction for the Way We Live Other authors in this line include a favorite of mine, Lisa Wingate and several books I have in my TBR pile I even like the feel of this book The smooth pages, the size I also like the conversation guide in the back which includes an interview with the author as well as a discussion guide I do admit to sometimes reading the conversation guide before the book, allowing for spoilers som [...]

    As a labor and delivery RN who is writing a book whose main character is you guessed it a labor and delivery RN, I loved this book especially the first few chapters Dr Clara Raymond is called to help a pregnant patient who seems to be in early labor Then all hell breaks loose The patient is her childhood friend, Lydia Benson, the father of the child is Clara s first and possibly only true love, Gordon Robinson, and as I was pulled into the developing trauma and complication of the birth well, th [...]

    Hayseed

    A quick read, if you like medical stories and mishaps, it is interesting.


    Allison Olson

    I thought the premise of this was good Well written too Just found myself impatient and skipping ahead too much to enjoy.


    Louise

    For a debut novel this was a deeply touching story Tragedy, uncertainty, pondering, and healing are the most striking issues that come from this exquisitely written novel I ll definitely be watching for further Elizabeth Letts novels.From back cover Clara Raymond is the kind of obstetrician any woman would want caring, skilled, dedicated But she is caught off guard when a pregnant woman is wheeled onto the labor and delivery floor with what seem to be minor complications The patient turns out to [...]

    One night, an obstetrician gets a surprise patient a childhood friend who once saved her life Things go horribly wrong The complication The childhood friend is married to the obstetrician s former lover Did the OB do all she could Doubts assail her from within and without, and she escapes to her childhood home in California, where under somewhat false pretenses she finds work as a stablehand During this time she learns much about herself and her own past I was afraid this was going to be melodr [...]

    Held my interest, but I didn t like the horse stuff I also was upset that the author, a midwife, chose to write about an obstetrician Why not use her talents to write about a midwife and get midwifery out there into the mainstream I also have some issues with her management of the shoulder dystocia she describes will surely come back to haunt her if she ever finds herself in court for a similar situation I kept waiting for her to make the point that the obstetrician had done the wrong thing and [...]

    I really enjoyed this book On the surface, it s the story of an obstetrician who experiences a traumatic birth where the mother dies On a deeper level, it s the story of a woman who has never dealt with her past, choosing instead to close the door and pretend it has no relevance.All of us are impacted in our lives by many other people Frequently we are unaware of how they were a part of our life, and sometimes even that they touched it This story explores these relationships.It s a great story, [...]

    This book was given to me and I thought I would give it a chance It had a good story, although predictable I am very glad I read it after I had our children, it has a lot of obstetrics and a very bad and tragic situation many things went wrong with pregnancies and deliveries it was tough to read I would maybe give it 3.5 Lots of people confronting their pasts, past secrets, identities were surprising, certainly a formula I have read before.


    Bev Sykes

    I read this book because I know Elizabeth, who was a midwife in the clinic I managed for a couple of years The book is about a nurse midwife who goes back to re examine her past, but it was fun trying to pick out who each character might represent It was a good story Not a great story, but it held my interest An easy reading book.


    April

    On paper this book sounded great it s a medical novel with an OB concentration, there are horses in it which I love but it was just okay The writing was definitely not amazing A review on the back cover said A good read and I remember thinking that that isn t what you d call a rave review, is it


    Caren Nelson

    I really liked this book It is about horses actually than babies, but it did keep my interest because it switches between now and the past so I kept reading in order it find out we got to where we were.


    Erica

    While the story line was good, there were parts of the plot that were a just a little too much for me I mean, really a huge brush fire and a woman going into labor all at the same time But the rest of the story, the characters and the main themes were very well written.


    Allen Steele

    Clara and Lydia were best friends in school, however they had lost touch Clara becomes a doctor and come to her old friend for pre natal care Who coincendentally is expecting a baby with Clara s old flameGood medical descriptions here, but not very entertaining.


    Pauline

    great read


    Charlotte

    A quick read with some fun twists, this is one you don t want to put down.


    Jane Paul

    Pretty predictable Really just an okay summer read Maybe better if you love horses.


    Pamela Reed
