The Midwife’s Legacy (4 in 1 collection)


Four novellas in one book.

1 in stock (can be backordered)


One journal unites four generations.

An aged journal links the lives of four spirited women who battle outside elements, opposition, and all odds to aid new life into the world. Will the fight to find true love be just as hard?

Midwife and widow Adele Marley is content with an adopted daughter, a Wisconsin farm, and her role in the community. Is there room in her life for smitten banker Jerome Schmidt, a man used to getting what he wants?

On the wagon-train trail to Oregon, Polly Schultz finds confidence, comfort, and guidance in her own skills by reading her mother’s journal. But can she overcome her rising temper and fear of abandonment long enough to establish a future with minister Gordon Baker?

Thanks to the wise words found in her ancestors’ journal, Christiana is secure in her role of midwife. But how will she convince Noah Cafferty, a journalist who decries women working outside the home, that she is capable of being both a wife and a midwife?

Kendra Silverstone’s confidence is shaken when a client loses a newborn. Will carpenter Steven Nichols and the discovery of a long-lost journal be enough to convince her of God’s will for her life?

How will God work to make the dreams of these courageous women come true?
