    1. Gar Lundstrom was a moody farmer trying to accept his wife's death soon after giving him a daughter. Their marriage was not what he anticipated but it was easy to blame the midwife, Leah Gunderson. But Leah gave as good as she got. There was an attraction and some resentment that formed their relationshipHO this was a very odd historical romance. Going in, you know they each have secrets that they choose not to share with the other. Leah is 30 years old and has been on her own for a long time. S [...]

    2. Although I really did like this book, as far as sappy romances go, it could've been better. While a quick read, part of that was due to sudden plot endings. There was a great story going on, with warm characters who I was starting to understand and want more of. And then they all fell off a cliff. The very end was pretty lacking. All in all a good lovey story with decent characters, that needed to be longer and more in depth.

    3. THIS HOtttt LOVE STORY MELT MY HEART SRINGS TO PUTTY! WITHIN THIS LOVE STORY'S Lifeline IT DOESNT MATTER HOW MANY DAYS IT TOOK ROME TO BE BUILT CAUSE THIS STORY MOVED ALONG FAST AND THE LOVE WAS SWEETTTT TILL THE LAST DROP. I'll never forget this treasure called: THE MIDWIFE!It was indeed an endearing pleasure to have read. Ms.Davidson Iam sold also Iam a new found fan. You (((rock))) Carolyn Davidson!!!!

    4. Lacking Dramatic TensionWe all know how the story in any romance ends, so when the sex scenes are just okay and the tension between the characters is lackluster, it is pretty much a fail. The technical aspects of the writing are good, and the plot itself isn't bad, but I've seen other authors make more of less.

    5. Great story about a midwife and her strapping farm husband. It was very clean and nice read. The story was quick paced, allowed character development, and provided romance, hard-work, and mystery. I enjoyed the story because I enjoy stories set in the past when time was much simpler, but harder. Great, quick read!

    6. An enjoyable read, typical for the genre. The attention to historical detail came through without hitting the reader over the head. I wish there had been more tension when Leah's past came looking for her; the solution came too pat.Good delving into the characters' motivation and what made them act the way they did.

    7. This was a sweet romance story set back in the 1800s. A midwife that ended up helping to care for the baby that she delivered but was not able to save the mother, and how a romance began between her and the baby's father.

    8. Histórias de vidas que se cruzam de modo inesperados.Uma mulher fugindo do passado ( Leah) ao ajudar no parto da esposa de Garlam é injustamente acusada por ele de que ela matou a esposa. E numa forma de reparação pede que ela crie sua filha que sobreviveu ao parto.E depois a pede em casamento para que cuide da casa e de seus dois filhos.Mas, Leah é uma mulher forte, determinada, de língua afiada, teimosa e independente que porá à prova a paciência dele. Garlam é uma homem durão, brus [...]

    9. No es un mal libro pero tampoco he encontrado nada remarcable en él. Otra historia parecida a otras tantas que probablemente olvidaré en un suspiro. Lo más entretenido del libro ha sido que la relación entre los protagonistas se va construyendo poco a poco, nada de insta-love-lust, y que ambos son personajes que se hacen querer, el resto de la historia me ha parecido un poco inconsistente, los secundarios muy planos, los niños muy empalagosos y la historia ya hacia el final también me ha p [...]

    10. What a lovely page-turner. Gar offers to marry Leah after the death of his wife at childbirth. Unfortunately Leah had attended the birthing of the poor woman. She acts as substitute mother for the baby until Gar offers for her hand. They marry and while Leah captures the heart of Gars children, Karen and son Kristopher, both adults fall in love. The marriage is troubled with an incident which occurred earlier in Leah's life but it does not interrupt their love awakening. In the end, all is right [...]

    11. Leah, posing as a widow to be able to work as a midwife, marries Gar after she delivers his daughter but his wife dies in the process. This is a backtitle from the 90s, although later 90s than I would have guessed from cover and content. It was just past the big alpha hero divide - I could see where the story would have gone in different directions a few years earlier or later. I liked the setting, I liked the mystery, I was taken aback by a late book reveal, and I liked Leah very much.

    12. This book was surprisingly deep and the topic of midwives was refreshing. I like how this portrays the male MC Gar. It takes a while but he wins you over. After what girl doesn't want a big viking? This was a thrift store find and sometimes I take guilty pleasure in the virginal sweet woman meets tough stoic big man kinda thing. Leah was feisty though and the kid in the book really won me over.

    13. This one was a surprise. Much better than most of the Harlequins I've read in that it had much less purple prose and corny sentiment. Gar and Leah's relationship is a real one, not instant love, so the reader actually has the pleasure of watching the relationship grow. Steam factor is low, but it's a really sweet romance.

    14. Very sweet story begining in tragedy but developing into revelations of secrets, forgiveness, healing. Gathering a family to a lonely woman & giving joy, fulfilment to obligated weighted man.Love inclusions of herbal law & humility as a gifted healer.

    15. The story started strong but turned into an ordinary HP overpowering sweetness very soon. The heroine was just too much of Martha Stuart and kids involved in the story were unrealistically angelic.

    16. This was a very good read. Likeable characters and a good storyline that had me glued to the book. I *loved* Gar. :)
