This 'Midwife's Saga' was more interestingly written than 'Into These Hands.' Ms. Leonard is a great storyteller. Some of her stories made me laugh, and some made me cry (a rare feat for a book).
She uses a fair amount of salty language, so reader beware. She also frequently describes herself as praying to the Goddess.
This book would appeal to those who enjoy reading about birth, and who can handle salty language and pagan spiritualism.
