This week's book is Delivering the Truth by Edith Maxwell.
This is the first in a new series set in 1888 and featuring a Quaker midwife. I actually finished it this week, and I really enjoyed it.
Here's how the book begins.
Minnie O'Toole screamed again, a long piercing wail. Her eyes bulged and her round face shone as red as hot coals. "I'm going to die," she whimpered.
Since I read this as an electronic arc, I'll jump ahead to 56% into the book, where we find this quote:
"Oh, Miss Carroll, what am I to do? I need to tell detective Donovan. But what if he arrests my Nellie?"
I am planning to review this book next Friday, so I hope you'll come back then to see my review. Meanwhile, have a wonderful Easter weekend.
