Eleanor Bertin’s Endorsement!

A Midwife in Amish Country is a tale for hopeful teenage girls, for nostalgic menopausal women, for child-bearing and child-rearing mothers. It’s a book of life—its first breath, its seasons, from its ordinary to its heart-stopping moments, and its endings. In it, Kim Osterholzer tells of the midwife’s creed—to keep out of the way and let women and their families tend to the work of bringing forth new life. But she tells us, too, about her own life as one of these invisible helpers—her dreams of becoming a full-fledged midwife, free of the annoying and inconvenient tendency to nausea at the business of birthing, her fears of hurting a client through ineptness, her own sense of inadequacy for the many roles of her life and of her increasing dependence on the Creator of life. We follow her through her young romance, marriage, the homebirths of her own children, ministry to the church youth group; all the while we come along as she catches babies in a midwifery apprenticeship she describes is much like the birth experience itself—a refining fire.”

—Eleanor Bertin, author of the novel, Lifelines, and Pall of Silence, a memoir

I met Eleanor on Twitter a few springs ago and a kinship sprang up between us immediately! Eleanor is a fellow believer, homebirther, and homeschooler! The summertime after our encounter I tucked her novel with me into a sea kayak and enjoyed it while paddling among the glaciers of Alaska. This summer I’m grieving with her as I make my way through her heart-wrenching memoir. Eleanor’s beautiful review of my book provides an apt snapshot of her heart and skill as a writer.

Thank you, Eleanor, for taking the time to read my book and review it—and thank you so much for your friendship as well! To more of all as our years progress!
