Reviews

"The Runaway Midwife takes us on a journey from loss, grief and guilt to one of love, forgiveness and redemption. Patricia Harman deftly tells the story of a midwife who discovers that she, too, can soar like the island's wild swans." -- New York Times bestselling author Mary McNear "In The Runaway Midwife, Patricia Harman, delivers a fast-paced, engrossing tale of a woman on the run from a bad marriage and an estranged daughter [...] The characters are convincing, the plot tight and the conclusion convincing." -- Roberta Rich, author of The Midwife of Venice "[Harman] draws on her experience as a midwife to add true-to-life detail to Clara's adventure, grounding the high-stakes story. Full of hope and heart, this will appeal to anyone tempted by the thought of complete reinvention." -- Booklist "[This] novel takes readers on a journey of transformation and self-discovery... the characters are dynamic, the central themes are relatable and the story will warm your heart and soul." -- RT Book Reviews "Harman's (The Midwife of Hope River) experience as a midwife shines thorough in the details in this quiet novel about a woman rediscovering her true self. Fans of Maria Semple's Where'd You Go Bernadette will enjoy this story of a woman's courageous reinvention." -- Library Journal
