"The Birth House" by Ami McKay

I finished this book. Once I got into the book it was hard to put it down. It is historical fiction that takes place in a small town in Nova Scotia. The main character is a midwife.

Dora Rare definately lives up to her last name. She is a rare character that makes you believe that you are right in her life. Definately worth a read if you enjoy historical fiction or reading about women.

For anyone who has aspirations of someday being a writer, my writing pal just down the street, er — Highway 3 — has interviewed Ami McKay, author of The Birth House — a hugely successful first Canadian novel.
