    Midwife Patience Murphy has a gift: a talent for escorting mothers through the challenges of bringing children into the world. Working in the hardscrabble conditions of Appalachia during the Depression, Patience takes the jobs that no one else wants, helping those most in need - and least likely to pay. She knows a successful midwifery practice must be built on a foundation of openness and trust - but the secrets Patience is keeping are far too intimate and fragile for her to ever let anyone in.

    I just loved this book. The people were real with real problems, yet not overwhelming nor depressing. The story was good from the start and continued to keep going. It held my attention throughout. No slow spots or chapters you felt like fast forwarding through. I hope we hear more from this author

    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    I really loved "Shelter Mountain" However I found myself very disappointed at the constant foul language. I know a lot of people don't think anything of it, but I don't enjoy hearing it all the time. I am very offended by the use of Jesus Christ name used in such a awful way. Why pick on him? I much prefer authors that can express pain, frustration, and other strong feelings without having to use curse words. We have a huge vocabulary of words! Why use the same one over and over? The story was good, I think the author needs to be a little mindful that all people may not enjoy having their ears blasted with constant cursing when listening to a good book. It is really too bad as I won't be reading anymore of the series as it ruins the whole book for me. Hummm I have to pay to listen to cursing.


    If you’ve listened to books by Robyn Carr before, how does this one compare?

    This my first and last, won't be listening to any more


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She has a very good voice, very expressive, and easy to understand.


    Did Shelter Mountain inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, Stop listen to books that cannot make better use of the vast array of words in the English language.
