Sibyl Danforth, an experienced midwife, must resort to desperate measures to save a baby's life on a cold winter night in a rural VT house. Bohjalian deftly portrays Sibyl's crises - personal, legal, medical and moral and gives us a memorable character in addition to offering an intriguing glimpse into the world of midwifery. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
