This sequel to The Midwife of Venice presents a satisfying conclusion for midwife, Hannah. Rich's descriptions are vivid and characters interesting. Works as a standalone novel, but readers will enjoy it more if they've previously read The Midwife of Venice.

Wayyyyyyy too many confusing and difficult characters and names, not enough back story, the writer builds up to this climatic moment 5 pages before the books conclusion, and leaves MANY unanswered questions. I will not be purchasing my own copy!

This was very good. What an interesting scenario, and you can't help but fall in love with Hannah and the story she tells.

I enjoyed this book much better than it's predecessor, The Midwife of Venice. Although it is a sequel, it can be read alone without any loss of understanding.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Learning how life was back then always fascinates me.

Rich has written a romantic story about the life of a Jewish midwife in Constantinople. The form is not original but the plot is intriguing.

As alluring as cotton candy. Easy to consume, irresistible even, but leaves you with that feeling of having overindulged and in need of some real sustenance.
