The Mountain Midwife by Laurie Alice Eakes

Oh my such a fabulous tale by Laurie Alice Eakes yet. 
I loved, loved it!!!!  Very fast pa cedar from the beginning to end. 
Ashley Tolliver comes from a long line of midwives dating back to the 1800's. How fascinating this is to know your family history from the beginning of time!!!
I know I keep comparing some of these stories to my own circumstances.  I too am adopted.  But unlike Hunter, I have no idea who my birth parents are. I only know the ones who loved me and raised me. However; maybe in God's timing I'll someday meet my mom and real sisters.  What my reaction will be upon meeting them? Who knows? 
I think that the people who know their family history sometimes takes advantage to the ones who don't know like me. Maybe whoever will read my blogs might know something of my mom. I don't know
Anyway,  I really enjoyed the story. I was hoping that Laurie would continue with the Midwife series.  
I'm so glad that Ashley decided not to go away to medical school.  I'm equally glad she came of her high horse and listened to her parents and God To Let The Lord take more control of things instead of Ashley.  Hunter too. 
Hunter was brought down after seeing his mom and learning that he really did have a rich family history.  I'm so glad that he took the time to find the strange woman caller. 
I'm not too happy with what happened with his half siblings though but I guess everyone makes mistakes.  I'm glad they woke up in time to realize it before they wound up getting everyone killed. 
I do however think that Jase needs to be brought down a notch or too though.  I'm also thinking maybe Heather could've picked someone else to have an affair with which really shouldn't have happened at all. 
I do however love happy endings! 
Will there be a future for Ashley and Hunter? I sure hope so because they seem like they could be an awesome couple! !!
I love Laurie Alice Eakes and I hope she writes another book. I'd love to see if Mary Kate gets to better herself and learn what happens to Race Jean and Jeremiah. Does Sheila gets to see her two kids Laurie? 
Stay tuned for the next of Laurie's books
This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.  
I will give this book 5 stars and I recommend it to my friends who like to read!!!
