"The women in Ashley's family have helped mothers usher new life into this world for generations. But what if it's Ashley's turn to have a new life? Ashley Tolliver has tended to the women of her small Appalachian community for years. As their midwife, she has seen it all. Until a young woman gives birth to a baby at Ashley's home and is abducted just as Ashley tries to take her to the nearest hospital. The new mother is dangerously bleeding and needs medical attention. Now Ashley is on a mission to find the woman and her newborn baby before it's too late. Hunter McDermott is on a quest to track down his birth mother. After receiving more media attention than he could ever want from a daring rescue of a young girl, he received a mysterious phone call from the middle of Virginia from a woman claiming to be his mother. He seeks out the aid of the local midwife her family has assisted in the births of most babies for many generations surely she can shed some light on his own family background. Ashley isn't prepared for the way Hunter's entrance into her world affects her heart and her future. He reignites dreams she has long put aside, dreams of earning her medical degree and being able to do even more for her community. But is it commitment to her calling or fear of the unknown that keeps her feet firmly planted in the Appalachian soil? Or is it something more fear of her growing feelings for Hunter that make her hesitant to explore the world beyond the mountains?"-- Provided by publisher.

I felt like the story was trying too hard, very predictable and with religious undertones I wasn't expecting.

Love story of a mountain midwife and a city boy with lots of twist and turns that destroy who they think they are. Quick enjoyable read

My first read by this author. Not a bad story, engaging, easy to read, not too deep and easy to follow the story line. Just a night book. Two stories that intersect. McDermott who is trying to locate a woman who claims to be his mother; and a young woman who has given birth at the midwife's home and then been stolen away. McDermott and the midwife are thrown into a chase to locate McDermott's mother and the young woman.
