10/10 - The mention of the word 'biblical' always makes me nervous. I start imagining pages of So and So beget So and So, then So and So beget So and So and so on and so forth. Although there is quite a lot of begetting in this book, the story is so beautiful and touching it is easily forgotten. I can't believe I waited so long to read it. There are so many key elements; love, mysterious places, different times, strong female characters. Working in labor and delivery gave me special perspective, although I think most women who have gone through childbirth appreciate midwives stories. This book earns a place on my highly recommended list.
