The Midwife's Apprentice

Amazon.com Rating:

A girl known only as Brat has no family, no home, and no future until she meets Jane the Midwife and becomes her apprentice. As she helps the short-tempered Jane deliver babies, Brat — who renames herself Alyce — gains knowledge, confidence, and the courage to want something in life for the first time: "A full belly, a contented heart, and a place in this world."

Medieval village life makes a lively backdrop for the funny, poignant story of how Alyce gets what she wants, while a concluding note discusses midwifery past and present. Like Cushman's previous award-winning book, Catherine, Called Birdy, this novel set in medieval England is truly spellbinding.

Description

"Cushman has an almost unrivaled ability to build atmosphere, and her evocation of a medieval village, if not scholarly in its authenticity, is supremely colorful and pungent.... The force of the ambience produces more than enough momentum to propel the reader from start to finish in a single happy sitting." — Publishers Weekly
